You can't get bored in this garden, between the green houses and their tropical plants and temperature and the garden there is always something new to see depending of the season. Just located next to Glasnevin cemetery and the gravediggers for a pint.

We brought a group from a nursing home. They loved seeing all the various plants, visiting the fabulous greenhouses and of course the inevitable pit-stop for tea and cakes. It is a great lace as there is always an interesting place to go into when it rains (as it often does in Ireland)

Spending a couple of hours meandering around The Botanic Gardens is a great way to relax and unwind. Enjoy lunch or just a coffee in the restaurant is recommended as well.

This place is extremely well looked after and beautiful. The art pieces featured were breathtaking and I always enjoy visiting this place when there's new art on exhibition. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Dublin or anyone how would enjoy a peaceful afternoon in the gardens.

The Botanic Gardens are simply breath taking. Be sure and find the cork tree and the "ear" stalks in the organic garden. Bring some break crumbs for the duck near the pond. My favorite thing was the sign that read, "Children must not run or play on the rockery". For some reason that made me smile. There is also a... More

An oasis of calm in the city. Beautiful and well tended grounds with a tropical glasshouse. The type of place you go to unwind and forget the world exists. next to Dublin's biggest cemetery which is also very well worth a visit as it the excellent gravediggers pub

Bring a camera, a blanket have a picnic beautiful spot in the centre of north Dublin. If you go here on the right day with a half decent camera you can get really stellar photos, plants are lovely well laid out grounds for a decent stroll around the gardens.

As a artist I was taking so many pictures of the beautiful gardens to paint when I returned home. There was so much to see we didn't even see all of the gardens. The gardens are easy to get to by bus and there are some great little shops and cafe's near by. I really enjoyed the green house. This... More
