I really like the greenhouses in the Botanic Gardens, looking at all the colourful exotic plants. In Spring and Summer the grounds are so alive with color. There is just enough information signs around to inform you but they do not bombard you. You can spend time squirrel spotting and trying to make friends with pheasants.

Wonderful Had afternoon tea and scones... More

This is a great place for a picnic, meeting friends old and young, botanists and those that just like to be in a very attractive environment. I for one like change and for me this is just a short trip from my home and somewhere interesting to hang out.

The Botanic Gardens are always great on a nice day! Been a good few times now, and it's always a nice leisurely walk around looking at the plants.

Well worth a visit - nice to walk around, plenty to see - and you can also visit Glasnevin Cemetery - plenty of history of Dublin

My title said it all, just a bit too dear and the slice was small but the surrounding gardens were lovely even though it was a wintry day

We love to visit the Botanic Gardens and we try to go at least once every season. The gardens are always busy with people of all ages and families looking around. The plants and trees are always so beautiful and no matter how many times we go we always see something different. We especially love when the Botanic Gardens do... More

I am a regular visitor to the Botanic Gardens and one of the wonders is that it is never the same twice. The gardens themselves; the restored greenhouses; and the catering facilities are excellent. Well worth a visit - and the kids love it.
