  • Amazing gardens that are quite large. It would take 2hrs to see it all, but you should stop and take it all in. 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.

  • Very nice place to spend few hours with the all family. There is parking (not free), the entrance is free. Just walking around is very nice and there are quite a few green houses that accommodate plants from different climates around the world.

  • It's lovely.But wouldn't call it child friendly when you have groups of kids to take on outing.There is no room provided and we had stand out in the band stand area in rain and eat our lunch with 21 Kids.I won't be back I thought it was a joke. Seemingly they are suppose to be working on a facility for big groups. Beautiful Gardens.but very disappointed on such a cold wet day .

  • If you want a break and a trip out of the city, this is hard to better on a good day. And when the weather is soft, the extensive palm houses are still a delight. Gardens cafe too small and overtrading on day of visit, but good cafes just along from entrance.

  • One of my favourite places in Dublin. Great to visit in any season. There is always something interesting to see: flowers, trees that change colour, green houses, succulent plants, squirrels, a herb garden with seasonal vedge and fruit. The only downside: garbage bins are missing and the gentleman at the reception refused to be helpful. Finally found some garbage bins in the toilets and in the restaurant.
