Was wonderful to experience the peace and tranquility of these fantastic gardens with the many spring blooms. Was just the tonic to enable one to reflect on the Belfast of today against the Belfast I saw as an adolescent on the TV back in Australia

My favourite park in Belfast 😃 from students to dog walkers and romantic benches, grab a takeaway coffee and marvel at the colours

Belfast’s Botanic Gardens make for a nice and relaxing walk near the campus of Queen’s. The gardens aren’t immense, but have a few different zones which are memorable like the rose garden and especially the greenhouse. The greenhouse is definitely worth a visit with beautiful architecture and more than a few interesting plants. The grounds can be walked even at... More

Maybe it was the time of the year but it really wasn't too interesting. It's a nice walk around the park but it's run down and not well attended to.

It's free which makes me happy, the gardens are very nice and make for an enjoyable stroll however the greenhouses could do with a bit of work, they're a bit scruffy, the plants aren't too well tended and the rectangular greenhouse looks like no-one has even been in there for a year.

Although completely free, which is a bonus, this botanic garden is a little disappointing. There are no signs explaining any of the plants, and when we visited the rainforest house was closed for redevelopment. If you're in the area it might be worth a quick wander but don't go out of your way to visit it.
