Journaling: Iveagh Gardens, hidden in the middle of Dublin Ireland. How many writers spent time here, getting inspiration and ideas for their wonderful works? Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, Maeve Binchy or Bram Stoker ... ?
Once a private garden but opened to the public in 1817 Clonmell Lawns/Coburg Gardens had fallen into disrepair by 1860. Ownership changed hands again and a winter garden was created based on the Crystal Garden of Sydenham in London.
Eventually the buildings on the site became the University College of Dublin until they moved in 1961. After undergoing extensive renovation in 1992, Iveagh Gardens was re-opened to the public and is now under guardianship of the OPW of Dublin.
