Industrial Exhibitions in the 19th century were the World Trade Fairs of their day, with pleasure gardens to amuse visitors, and companies from around the world showing the latest domestic appliances, scientific instruments, and industrial machines. The site for the Exhibition was on land leased from Lord Iveagh whose house was on St Stephen’s Green.
The Dublin Exhibition Palace and Winter Garden stood upon a site of about fifteen statute acres formerly known as the Cobourg Gardens. In 1865, these gardens hosted a great industrial exhibition, with a Crystal Palace that was a feat of engineering; also, a concert hall, and even a sunken archery garden. The Exhibition opened May 9, 1865, closed on November 10, 1865.
