The Garden of Remembrance is located in Dublin City at Parnell Square. A place of quiet remembrance and reflection, the garden is dedicated to the memory of all who gave their lives in the cause of Irish freedom. The garden was designed by Daithí Hanly and the large sculpture by Oisin Kelly is based on the theme of the 'Children of Lir'.
 
Merrion Square is one of Dublin's largest and grandest Georgian squares. On three sides are Georgian Houses and on the other the garden of Leinster House, and two museums. Many of the houses, predominantly used as office space, have plaques detailing the rich and famous who once lived in them, for example Daniel O'Connell and W.B.Yeats. The attractive central park features colourful flower and shrub beds. Look out for the statue of Oscar Wilde reclining on the rock. On Sundays, artists hang their works for sale on the railings surrounding the park.
 
In addition to extensive woodlands, water features and recreational facilities, the rose gardens of St Anne's Park and Rose Gardens are of international importance and are at their peak from June through September. The park is extensively used by the public, as it offers 35 playing pitches, 18 hard-surfaced tennis courts, four boules courts and a par-3 golf course. There is also a playground, which is fitted with suitable units to compliment the parkland setting, along with a picnic area.

Visitors can enjoy such features as the herbaceous borders, rose garden, the alpine yard, the pond area, rock garden and arboretum.
