I have been going to the Botanic Gardens since I was a child. It is the perfect place to go with your family, friends, partner or on your own. From the river to the greenhouses, there is something for every nature lover. The Botanic Gardens are a gem of Dublin.

This gardens are amazing Such a great variety of plants, trees and flowers. It is so we'll maintained. Perfect for a family day out. It's a little oasis in the middle of Dublin City.

The gardens and grounds were beautiful and varied...the color was beautiful. The selection of grasses was especially nice. Nice lunch. Lots of benches to sit and enjoy the different areas. The buildings were gorgeous.

Beautiful grounds filled with beautiful plants. A great place for avid photographers, home gardeners looking for inspiration and family picnics (there is a sign forbidding picnics but I noticed quite a few families out with their sandwiches and picnic blankets). A lovely way to spend an hour or two.

It must have been exceptionally warm in Dublin and lack of rainfall when we toured the Botanic Gardens...as the flower beds looked dry and not as thriving as we would have expected. Enjoyable nevertheless.

So far one of the best green super experience in Dublin. Can't recommend enough this place. Nice for an engagement proposal or some wedding pictures. A stress free place where one could easily find its inner peace. One could also build up its imaginary castle right in the middle of this beauty. Will go back no doubts to contemplate this... More

Great free tours throughout the year on weekends at 2.30pm. (Check website for details.) See cabbage roses in summer and the 'sensitive plant' and orchids in the glasshouses on a cold, wet winter's day. Staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic. You can learn about native Irish plants (leaves of holly trees are less spiky at the top as they're away from... More
