The park hosts several spectacular events every year. It has become one of the most favourable event venues in Dublin recently, due to its intimate and personal feel.
It attracts people from all over the country for the annual Taste of Dublin festival; a huge celebration of magnificent foods with top chiefs demonstrating their signature dishes to the public. Along with this, the Iveagh Gardens also hosts the Vodafone Comedy Festival; another hugely successful summer event that attracts people from all over and includes the top current comedians.
Over the years, the Iveagh Gardens has welcomed some of the greatest Irish and international artists including Birdy, The National, Christy Moore, The Tallest Man on Earth, and Josh Ritter.
