  • It's a beautiful little park in Salthill. Very pretty and love the circle of life theme. Pretty flowers, stones, and quotes.  more »
  • We were staying at the hotel right next door to this beautiful garden. Commemorates birth, organ donation and life itself. Worth taking half an hour to wander through the garden.  more »
