Located in the Ranelagh neighbourhood of Dublin City, the Dillon Garden is an urban oasis. There is a series of small gardens each with a different theme. The gardens are arranged around a grand central canal and various smaller interconnecting pools, all set in Kilkenny limestone. Controlled throughout by a strong sense of design and colour, the Dillon Garden is a plant collection to rival that of a small botanic garden. Unusual perennials, alpines, bulbs and ferns are mixed up with self-seeding foxgloves, columbines, campanulas and feverfew. The long succession of flowers begins in March and runs through to the autumn. Rare herbaceous plants are a speciality. Dillon Garden was featured on the BBC's 'Gardeners World' TV programme.
