Great place to spend several hours. We were very lucky to have a blue sky day so gardens were looking their best. Enjoyed the sculpture exhibition throughout the gardens but even more so the sculptures upstairs. Delicious inexpensive lunch.

The Dublin National Botanic Gardens is one of the must see in Dublin, we went there with a big group from Germany and they all enjoyed it.

Lovely place to wander around, but particularly nice on a warm day. We spent an hour plus when we were visiting the Glasnevin Cemetery (adjacent to each other)
