National Botanic Gardens - Review

National Botanic Gardens is a lovely green zone to explore where you have the bliss of nature and a couple of picnic spots on the same land. The garden is replete with trees, shrubs and colorful flowers. The garden is home to a café as well which serves yummy snacks and meals. The National Botanic Gardens is an oasis of peace in the middle of a bustling city life. You could of course relax at the garden to get away from the busy city atmosphere.

  • Absolutely one of the favourite parks in the capitol. It is clean and provides a lot of interesting plants and not only. When weather permits it can easily become a full day attraction as there are coffee and food amenities. But if not plenty of well maintained green areas can become nice picnic spots. Just remember to clean after yourself.

  • I had a great time here, especially with this great summer we’re having it’s the perfect place to visit, it’s a very large space and will take anywhere from 2 hours + to see everything but time flies in there, I must say it’s definitely one of Dublin’s best free attractions especially on a glorious summers day ! Entry is free for all visitors, but you'll have to pay for parking. That only cost 1 euro per hour and 2 euro per hour from the 3rd hour onwards. Not bad for the free day out though it is definitely worth it ! Couldn’t recommend higher ! Should definitely be checked out if it hasn’t already, great free day out !

  • I always have to hit up the botanical gardens on every trip. This one was very good and I was pleasantly surprised given it was also free! The greenhouses were the highlights for sure. The scent coming from the main house was simply divine, I wish I could bottle it and take it with me!

  • Amazing gardens that are quite large. It would take 2hrs to see it all, but you should stop and take it all in in places. While there I saw some great sights, got great pictures and ate lunch with a squirrel! Entry is free for all visitors, but you'll have to pay for parking. That only cost 1 euro per hour and 2 euro per hour from the 3rd hour onwards. Definitely one of the must visit places in Dublin. Especially on a great day.

  • A lovely place to spend half a day. Entry is free and there is a cafe and toilets on-site. It's open until 4:45pm weekdays and 5:45pm weekends. We only spent an hour here but it was a nice relaxed atmosphere and exploring the gardens was lovely. It's easy to get to from the city centre as it is on several bus routes and a single costs between £2.10-2.85. The only negative is that there were no bins anywhere in the gardens, not even at the cafe!
