On a sunny day, not that we get many, this is wonderful place to visit and relax and as such it is very popular with locals and visitors to the city centre. It is also the starting point for many protest marches so sometimes you may see local politics in action. Despite some reviews that I have seen the place is safe and I have never encountered anti-social behaviour.
This garden is usually packed but today I was the only person there which felt a bit strange. Over the last few years every time that I visited there has been construction ongoing which can be a bit annoying but one good thing that has resulted from this work is that they have installed a ramp and a lift to allow wheelchair access to all sections of the park.
Queen Elizabeth II laid a wreath in the Garden of Remembrance during her state visit in May 2011.
The Garden of Remembrance is a memorial garden in Dublin dedicated to the memory of "all those who gave their lives in the cause of Irish Freedom". It is located in the northern fifth of the former Rotunda Gardens in Parnell Square, a Georgian square at the northern end of O'Connell Street. The garden, which I really like, is in the form of a sunken cruciform water-feature. The focal point is a statue of the Children of Lir by Oisín Kelly, symbolising rebirth and resurrection, added in 1971.
