Mountjoy Square was part of the Gardiner Estate on Dublin city's Northside. The Estate was developed by three generations of the Gardiner family between 1720 and around 1820.
The square was developed by Luke Gardiner, Lord Mountjoy in around 1800 as part of his vision for the area from Gardiner Street to the Custom House. It is the only Georgian square in Dublin that is perfectly symmetrical.
In 1938, the park passed from private to public ownership.

The granite sundial in the park dates back to the 1800's. There are also two tree surrounds that were commissioned by Pavee Point Traveller & Roma Centre. They are decorated in mosaic depictions of traveller life.
