Always a pleasure to visit the Botanic gardens. I have been going since I was a child. I started bringing my children at a very early age too. The gardens suit all ages and its so lovely to experience the changing seasons. Its well worth a visit for anybody who hasn't been. The restaurant serves a really good selection of... More

We were in the botanic gardens at 9am due to an early morning flight and only saw two other people for the whole of our visit. It was a beautiful sunny morning and the gardens were stunning. It was the perfect antidote to a crowded airport and budget flight. It is a little out of the city but we took... More

I love the Botanic Gardens. It's calm, peaceful and beautiful right in the city. Winter or Summer there's always something to see. The glasshouses are stunning. It's a great place for photography or bringing the children for a walk. And after a long walk there is a lovely restaurant where you can stop for breakfast or lunch (although a little... More

Most tourists to Dublin never get to see these gorgeous gardens. Plus some DUBLIN residents have never or rarely been there. The Botanic Gardens is easily accesible from downtown by bus. There is no entrance fee. Pick a nice day for a stroll through these lovely gardens and I promise you will not be disappointed.

We took a guided tour and spent an additional five hours looking over the amazing collection of plants. There was a Viking house, spectacular orchids, and beautiful roses. It was a bit past peak flower season but lots to be amazed by. The varieties of trees were so much more than we have ever seen and we live four blocks... More

Great layout. It seemed like an oasis with its peaceful setting. Just a beautiful place. The special guest in the Viking Hut designer undertaking green wood turning was an eyeopener

A little way out from the city centre, these gardens are beautiful. The staff at reception were very helpful, pointing out the areas of the garden that were looking particularly good at the time of our visit. The glasshouses were full of interesting things to see, but then so were the outdoor areas. They'd just erected a Viking-style wooden house... More
