amazing flowers and very peaceful. Although, marquees were being set up in parts of the gardens for a festival, so we didn't get to see it all. Hopefully next time.

We spent 6 hours walking around the gardens amazed by its beauty. I talked to a gardener and got a pamphlet that explained some of the trees. I wish more plants had been marked but he said that visitors take them or move them around. Wish they had a book with pictures. I checked in the Ulster Museum and no... More

We had some time to kill before leaving Belfast so visited the gardens- in the end we wished we had had more time. There were some beautiful planted beds and it was just a nice place to wander round. The Palm house was impressive and we wished we had had more time to explore the Ulster museum which is in... More

It also has a tropical ravine house, which has a sunken ravine runs the length of the building, with a balcony at each side for viewing. You can... More
