About the Garden

This beautiful garden in the heart of Dublin City was designed by Daithi Hanly and dedicated to the memory of all those who gave their lives in the cause for Irish Freedom.  The large sculpture by Oisin Kelly is based on the theme of the 'Children of Lir'  The garden is intended as a place of quiet remembrance and reflection.

The Garden of Remembrance marks the spot where several leaders of the Easter 1916 Rising were held overnight before being taken to Kilmainham Gaol, and was also where the Irish Volunteers movement was formed in 1913.
