I Got The Luas Tram To Citywest

The Tara Pool and the immediate surroundings at Lake Drive was designed by the Internationally acclaimed Landscape Architect, Martin Hallinan and is a large scale replica of the Tara Brooch.

 

Using the basic materials of water, rock, trees and plants as well as grass, an area of great beauty and relaxation came into being.

 

Being a man-made pool the water is kept in place by a heavy floor lining and is topped up from a local deep well. A gravity flow allows the water to flow down to the front lake by the N7 from where it is again pumped up to the Tara Pool.

 

Wildlife like Duck, Moorhens, Swans and Fish have come to make their home and breeding grounds at the Tara Pool.
