Relax and peace.

Huge botanic gardens. Free entrance. Car park 1 euros per hour. A little paradise for excaping from the noise of the city.

This is the sort of place that you should visit every few months every year. It is a little piece of heaven in the city.

The Botanic Gardens (known as the Bots) are the most wonderful riot of colour on the North Side of Dublin. You can easily spend a couple of hours here mooching and staring in wonder at the vast array of plants and trees. Strangely, most Dubliners have never been here! Why is that?

You could easily spend a whole day wandering these gardens. The sheer variety of plants is absolutely stunning. I find it astounding that there is no entrance charge. Well worth spending a relaxing day wandering through all that there is to offer.

So much to see - a fabulous experience. The glass houses are amazing and it is all cleverly and thoughtfully laid out. Can't wait to revisit.

It was a lesson in botany, and I became a student once again as I visited the green houses, the extensive garden, and the nursery of flowers. The myriad roses-in their hues- cheered me up on a gloomy , rainy day.

We spent the day at the Botanic Gardens in May and saw many trees and shrubs in bloom. The tulips were just finishing their bloom. A lovely visit for those who enjoy botanic gardens!
