Whether you just walk around or go in, you will love this place. I did. You will be thrilled at how unique and beautiful the Botanic Gardens is, I'm not one for knowing the names of all the flowers and plants, but the sense of peace there and astonishment of the inside, it's very worthwhile

We visited on a mild Sunday afternoon to se the fragrant display of roses in the rose garden. There are also 2 walkways to the right of the bandstands with amazing exotic flowers and shrubs as well as the more common summer varieties. Be aware that the Tropical ravine is closed for rennovation and as a result the exit onto... More

This was a pleasant walk, but it is not in the league of Butchart Gardens, Longwood Gardens, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Reggia di Caserta, or Monet's Gardens. That is to say, it's a nice respite from the city but it won't be the thing you tell all your friends about.

Peaceful place to walk. Wide variety of plants, but good place to spend time for those not interested in horticulture. Tropical ravine display and house is currently closed for renovation.

Small parkland in the centre of the university quarter. Easily accessible from the city centre by foot in 15 mins. Always feels safe and always spotlessly clean. It houses the Ulster museum and large Victorian glasshouses .

Lovely well kept gardens in the hear of the city. Not huge - you could walk around in half an hour but lovely plants and trees, which are tended well. Worth going for a relaxing time out.

Such a beautiful place to relax in Belfast. Was a short walk from our B&B. It was a gorgeous day when went and there were tons of people out on the lawns enjoying the weather. We even watched a bowling match while we were there. The rose garden was in full bloom and it was gorgeous. Great place to spend... More

Stop and smell the roses, literally at this oasis in south Belfast. The rose garden is beautiful and calming with gazebos to duck into if it rains. Next to the ulster museum.
