A great place to visit anytime of the year.You can monitor the seasons with the planting cycles and the plethora of blooms in season... Squirrels forgot to hibernate in the mild winter always there to entertain.

Vist here at the same time as the cemetery. As you are in and out of green/hot houses a cool day is advised for this visit.

If you need to get out of the city, definitely come here. The Glasnevin (sp?) Cemetery is right next to it as well, fortunately. The greenhouses were very impressive with the many flowers and plants. The grounds were beautiful. The cafes were ridiculously busy (on a Sunday).

There is something of interest at all times during the year from herbaceous borders, beautiful trees and interesting greenhouses. There is also great restaurant with lovely food and in September an... More

Wish I had been here in Spring or summer. Delightful gardens with magnificent greenhouses. Good seeing the exotic plants but think when the flowers are out it would be a treat to visit.
