I love visiting the National Botanical Gardens. Such wonderful variety of trees, shrubs, plants and flowers. Their tour offerings are excellent. I always learn something new. Have lovely memories of going into the cactus warm rooms to read a little on a cold day. You can easily walk through to visit Glasnevin Cemetery from here too. I highly recommend for a day out on your own, with friends or family.

A truly magnificent place to spend time with our family. More than 15000 plant species are being maintained. Good to spend some time with nature. It is completely free to enter the garden. Free Guided tour is available only on Sunday. Highly recommend this place.

Absolutely stunning. We did have to get a taxi to visit the gardens from where we were but it was absolutely worth it. The gardens were so gorgeous and I appreciated that they had signs on so many of the plants to identify them. Lots of fun nature to see as well - magpies, fat squirrels that come up to you to beg for food, storks, ducks, etc. The conservatories had more exotic plants (cacti, palms and more). At the end we just found a bench to sit on and relax. Gorgeous.

I have been to Botanic Gardens many times. Its an oasis to enjoy nature in the North side especially. The green houses are open again after covid restrictions are almost completely lifted. I enjoy the smell & texture of the glorious plants from all over the world. It's well worth a visit. There is a cafe restaurant as well if you want to meet for a chat & a cuppa...

Always an enjoyable visitor experience. The squirrels were very popular with our grandson. Great opportunity to race around, chasing them and failing to capture any of them! The Winter gardens still give of their best. The mistletoe covered trees and the tiny buds on the roses. Signs of Spring ... or is that just wishful thinking? The Mandarin Duck was in residence. Welcome to Dublin, you lovely, exotic creature. See you all in the real Spring.
