“Perfect for a picnic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

A perfect place for a picnic or simply lounging in the sun and watching the world go by, always lots of people too. Access from multiple locations throughout and very central.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

My Mum & I visited the gardens last Sunday and were disappointed. The large glass house on the left when you go in the main entrance is very run down. There we no impressive floral displays anywhere and a lot of the areas needed a good weeding. This is a nice park to walk your dog in with many green areas but we were expecting so much more having been to many fine parks and gardens in Ireland and across Europe. We'd only go back to visit the Ulster Museum which is located in the gardens. We didn't have enough time to fit that in on this visit.

“A lovely place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I love the museum and the walking through the park especially in summer as the flowers are in full bloom and it is so relaxing.

“Nice for a quick stop by or break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Botanic is the perfect place if you're looking for somewhere to relax with a coffee or sandwich. It is very well kept and is always bustling with locals who use the garden's facilities

“These were good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Just not the right time to visit as all flowers not out and there had been a rally or something the day before and were tiding up
