Dublin’s Most Romantic Places For a Proposal
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.
TIP: Have you decided not to chance getting the wrong ring? Book an appointment at DesignYard for after the main event and let her pick - our staff are happy to help select the perfect ring.
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.
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.
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.
