THE IRISH NATIONAL MEMORIAL GARDENS AT ISLANDBRIDGE
Islandbridge is unique: it remains the largest monument to military service of any description on the island of Ireland. I walked there on Sunday and was exhausted, because of the heat, but there is an excellent bus service if you know what stops to use – there are four bus stops on Con Colbert Road [two in each directions] at there is a bus every few minutes.
The sunken rose gardens at Islandbridge are a beautiful and tranquil spot in the Irish National War Memorial Gardens. They are located to the north of the gardens, and they are divided into two sections by a pergola.
The sunken rose gardens are home to a variety of roses, including hybrid teas, floribundas, and grandifloras. The roses are planted in beds that are surrounded by low walls, and they are arranged in a variety of patterns. The gardens are also home to a number of other flowers, including lavender, clematis, and hydrangeas.
The sunken rose gardens are a popular spot for visitors and locals alike. They are a peaceful and tranquil place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the flowers. The gardens are also a popular spot for weddings and photography.
Here are some additional information about the sunken rose gardens:

- The gardens are open to the public free of charge.
