Living in Wicklow have visited the National Botanic Gardens several times over the years. Visited again last weekend and all the flowers are in bloom. Fantastic place to visit and take in the Wicklow views while strolling through all the fauna. There is a coffee shop and public toilets all very accessible. A real gem, really recommend you add it to your Garden of Ireland visits.

Still a work in progress but a very nice place for an easy walk. Vibrant flowers and a good variety of trees and other plants can be found across the grounds. You could go here every few weeks and see something different. They also offer free tours from time to time so it is worth checking their website for that. There are a cafe and toilets on site. Note that the drive way is a single lane with small areas to pull over every so often.

A great experience thanks to a wonderful guide with a happy mixture of information and story. Also weather was good. Coffee shop excellent. Will certainly revisit to see seasonal changes

What a wonderful surprise! I'm ashamed to say I hadn't heard about this place and I'm originally from Wicklow! We had a beautiful walk through endless varieties of plants and trees and although I'm pretty plant ignorant I found myself stepping closer to read about the origin of many of them. , there's a free tour with expert guides, we didn't latch on for lack of time but I would definitely do it next time. At the end we had a very tasty meal in the coffee shop, only setback was that the toilets were out of order that day so the gallons of tea weighed heavily on us. Beautiful surroundings, history and botanical treasures, can't wait to go back.

Quite a nice surprise, first time visiting the gardens and really like how they are laid out. Looks like there is interesting views and walks all year round in the garden... have seen images of the rhododendron walk and they are amazing, worth visiting again for it.
