The gardens are just beautiful. A great way to spend an afternoon. The tearoom has good food but it has been crowded and hot all three times I've been there.

The Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin are free. It's a great place to walk with kids or with friends. There are trees to climb, places to hide, a small waterfall, beautiful flowers and several green houses to visit. I dint try the restaurant but have heard good things. We walked but there is parking also.

I'm not a great gardener but I do enjoy a thing of beauty. The botanic gardens are lovely and provide a beautiful respite in the midst of the city. They are directly on a bus route form the heart of Dublin and well worth the short (15 min?) ride.

Had a brilliant guided tour with Aoife (who informed us that she will be leaving the gardens next week unfortunately!), it was at a perfect pace - nice and relaxed to take in all the things that you would miss if not on a tour. Really interesting, great sights & smells, recommended!
