This is a super place to visit. The gardens are fabulous. Obviously there are better months to visit. Plenty of wildlife and great place to connect with nature. Good for the soul! Restaurant serves really good food and is always busy. Definitely worth a visit.

been here a few times but this time opted for the guided tour. Awesome experience, our guide was very knowledgeable and I learned so much in that hour. There were only 2 of us on the tour and it was well worth the €2 each. Highly recommend it. The pace of the tour was fast which was perfect for me.

What a lovely place to go. If its for a walk you will enjoy the plant and wildlife that abounds. Also excellent food on off in restaurant. Great place for the children to explore. Well worth a few hours of anyone's time.

The Botanic gardens is like a little find if you've never been there before. It's a beautiful haven in the city centre, excellently maintained and more importantly it keeps current by having regular events/ exhibitions

Loved walking the gardens, is really for adults children would probably be board , their cafe had wonderful food. It is not a quick tour so plan a few hours and wear comfortable walking shoes.

Whats not to like about a well maintained botanical garden when its free and reachable in 20 mins from city centre. Excellently managed and something for everyone. Fornal borders, rivers with bridges and open park land. Finish this off with a relaxing refreshment in the bright and open cafe near the entrance. Wonderful afternoon. No 9 bus from 0'Connell Street... More
