This free attraction is a perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon in Dublin. There are multiple greenhouses to view and a big walk around the buildings with an idyllic and picturesque lake.

Visited the Botanic Gardens whilst visiting friends here in Dublin. We came on a Sunday during lunchtime and spent quite a lengthy time here. It was lovely to find somewhere a little more sedate and beautiful after being in the hustle and bustle of Dublin...More

Not much in dublin is free- so we were surprised that no entrance fee here. The car park and cafes are reasonably priced. Various green houses growing various plants. Good for children to see how food grows including tea and coffee. Worth a visit
