Loved how the flower beds were laid out to provide opportunities to show how well different varieties of plants compliment each other. Loved the wonderful smells in the greenhouses. It's so relaxing to stroll along the various paths and watch squirrels scampering up trees. Nice little coffee shop too. Apart from a couple of euro for car park which unfortunately... More

A wonderful place, wonderful trees, amazing glasshouses and works of art. See a beehive up close and have a nice cup of coffee and a scone in the restaurant.

lovely place to visit special in the summer time, I felt like in Heaven. We had a quick coffee after our arrivals in the morning just before we start our tour amazing trip. Late lunch we were still there having a picnic near one of the small little lake. It is worth to visit.

I have visited the Botanic Gardens many times with my husband and it is a beautiful place just outside the city centre of Dublin. It has lovely scupltures located around the grounds and you can often see squirrels running about the grounds. It is worth a visit in the warm weather.

Went with my mother, sisters and nephew. Could spend the day here. Limited carpark spaces but is only €2. Even if you travel by bus its worth the visit and can go to Glasnevin Cemetery which is beside the garden

Really nice when you want to have a nice walk in the nature without being far from the city. I enjoyed the "forest" part and also the conservatories with the exotic plants... Then the treat is having an excellent coffee with a gorgeous piece of cake to finish a wonderful afternoon out...

A great place to relax and enjoy nature. The hot houses are amazing. The small river adds to the character of this great park. And it is free.

This is simply exquisite botanical garden, where I first wait and not in the latter. The garden grows many varieties of flowers there is something to see and stay in a nice atmosphere. Be sure to come back more soon.
