Getting ready to get down on one knee? Let us help you make it a memorable event with the best locations to pop the question around Dublin! Here are our top six suggestions (in no particular order):

Stephen’s Green, City Centre

Perfect for city slickers on a sunny day - take a stroll around one of Dublin’s most beautifully manicured parks and pop the question at the old bandstand, or catch her off guard while feeding the ducks from one of the rustic park benches.

Ha’Penny Bridge, Temple Bar

Perfect for a sunset proposal with the sun beaming down the river Liffey. The iconic Ha'penny Bridge is well known for its “love locks” which cover the decorative wrought iron railings. Maybe add one of your own to symbolise your love.

Iveagh Gardens, Dublin 2

Located just off Harcourt Street this enchanting park is perfect for an intimate proposal. As soon as you step through the gates the quaint winding paths transport you to a bygone era. One warning though - magpies rule this park so keep a close eye on your shiny ring!

Guinness Storehouse, Gravity Bar

Perfect for social butterflies, surrounded by convivial bar staff, contemporary fixtures and of course an unparalleled pint of Irish stout. Separated from the Dublin skyline by nothing but floor-to-ceiling glass, this is a spectacular venue for a proposal - particularly at sunset. If you’re brave, bring along your unsuspecting besties and get a head start on your engagement party.

Dublin Castle

The Gardens at Dublin Castle are perfect for your prince(ss). Or on a rainy day, pop into the adjacent Chester Beatty Library and envelop yourself with the opulent colours and textures of the early books and manuscripts collection.

Merrion Square

For your literary buff, a trip to the National Library followed by a stroll through Merrion Square ending at the marble statue of Oscar Wilde. Who knows, maybe his famous words “Women are meant to be loved, not understood” might help you on your way.
