Built in the 19th century, this garden was tasked with providing a clean water supply to the North side of Dublin city. Officially named the Royal George Reservoir, the basin could hold 4 million gallons of water. Until 1970 it supplied water to the Jameson Distillery, and to Power’s until 1976.
Now the basin is a public park with a fountain and bird sanctuary on its central island. With the ‘secret’ gateway entrance on Blessington Street, this beautiful walled garden feels like a world of its own. Well worth a visit at any time of year.
