    Quaint little park beside the cathedral of the same name. Enjoy a picnic or just laze on the green, or read abook in the sun. Plenty of bench seating. We didnt get the chance to go inside the cathedral, though it is open to visitors.

    Beautiful park with plenty of area to hang out and have a picnic. Don't miss the far side exhibit of Irish writers monument. Plenty of sitting in the park with benches and a nice backside view of the cathedral.

    We took a stroll down this park to reach St. Patrick's Cathedral. Not too large and locals use this too. Very pretty and small. Loads of benches to rest as well.

    Had a couple of strolls around the park on a couple of occasions recently. There's a lot of local people that use this park regularly and there's also a huge number of tourists around the area visiting the Cathedral right next door. The park is well maintained and cared for with some lovely flower beds and fountains. This is a really nice park to sit in for lunch while you let the world go by outside. With the Cathedral as a backdrop, this really is a lovely setting.

    This park is not large but has a nice walking path through it. There are some benches and plenty of green space and it is right next to St Patrick's Cathedral.

    With a backdrop of the magnificent St Patrick's Cathedral, this lovely park is a bucolic and tranquil sylvan space. With grand paths, a fountain and lots of greenery and flora it is delightful to relax in it or walk through. Legend has that St Patrick baptised the first Irish Christians nearby with water from the River Poddle. Whether he did or not, with views of the eponymous Cathedral, this green space is a fitting legacy.

    The park is usually very busy during the day. Went around sunset and it was practically empty. I was able to get unobstructed photos of the cathedral with great natural light.

    Yes, this is a lovely park well worth visiting and sitting a while. We strolled through later in the day and there were many people with children playing, folks relaxing, dogs being exercised. We were sorry not to be able to visit the church itself as it was not open, but there is interesting information about Dean Swift and the history. As an aside, we were also looking for a public toilet at the time of our walk through and found none. None evident on the streets, unlike Paris, for example.

    Went to st Patrick's church on the hop on off bus. Grounds well kept but the inside was rather boring to an American. It was dark so any pictures you may take may be poorly lit. 6.50 € each and we were in and out in less then an hour. Gift shop over whelming by the front door. The churches in Germany are better if you ever have seen them.

    The wide open sky above St. Patrick's park makes for a perfect rest stop, time of reflection or picnic. Just lovely.

    Perfect place to reflect and relax after visiting St Patrick's Cathedral. It was a sunny day when we visited, so that made it all the prettier,

    We spent a bit of time here while waiting for an organ concert at the nearby cathedral. The park is spacious enough to accommodate dog walkers, strollers, playful children, picnickers, and benchsitters easily. The cathedral also provides a backdrop with great visual and historical appeal.

    It's a very beautiful and peaceful park. Has a nice fountain for dogs to cool off in as well as a nice picnic area bring a blanket.

    Bring a blanket and layout for a while. We were there on a Saturday as they were setting up some festivities. Plenty of things for kids to do as well. Good place to picnic. Dog friendly.

    Nice park, near St. Patricks Church, plenty of children and it appeared to be well supervised. Children had a good time.

    Beautiful park next to the St. Patrick's Cathedral. It has a couple of fountains and several benches to sit and enjoy the view. It is really well taken cared of and super clean, even though there are always a lot of people in the area.

    Cute park adjacent to the cathedral. Nice place to relax. My granddaughters enjoyed the small playground despite the rain.

    This is a lovely park and the church is worth a visit as well. Some famous Dubliners, such as Jonathan Swift, are memorialized inside.
