Pass through the Garden of Remembrance

Posted on 15th March 2012 by

If you’re looking to learn about the history of the area that you are visiting and you’re a fan of cultured trips out, then the Garden of Remembrance is a must-see when you are visiting Dublin. The place is hardly a place for fun, but indeed, it’s a fantastic place to visit during your stay – even if you don’t stay long.

The garden was designed by Daithi Hanly, and was created in dedication to all of those who fell and lost their lives fighting for Irish Freedom. The people of Dublin pay their respects at the garden for all those people who gave their lives for this cause.

Within the garden you will see a large sculpture, too, which is based on the ‘Children of Lir’. The sculpture was made by Oisin Kelly and is a place of reflection for tourists and the people of Dublin. Between April and September, the garden is open between 8.30am and 6pm, and between October and March, it is open between 9.30am and 4pm.
