Irish National War Memorial Gardens

The Irish National Memorial Gardens are located at Islandbridge Dublin, on the River Liffey's south bank. They are dedicated to the memory of the thousands of Irish soldiers who died while serving with the British Army during the 1914-1918 Great War. Designed by architect Sir Edward Lutyens (1869-1944), the gardens cover an area of 60 acres & were laid out between 1931 & 1938. During her state visit to Ireland in May 2011, the late Queen Elizabeth laid a wreath at the memorial gardens.
