Lovely gardens in Co. Wicklow for the whole family to enjoy. Plants are named and the trails are not too steep and wheelchair friendly.
They give free guided walks, their are good facilities and there is a cafe there. Cant comment on this as we brought a picnic....
Easy to find as it is Well signposted the whole way but entrance needs a sign-we drove straight pass and noticed that all other vechiles had done the same....
Worth a visit!

Nice gardens, they are still a work in progress but they are very interesting. Guided tours daily. Nice coffee shop and picnic area. Dogs allowed which is nice.

Beautiful garden to dander around. We picked one of the hottest days to visit so got to see it at its best. As it was a Monday it wasn't too busy. Free entry and a safe car park was also a bonus. A must for anyone who likes gardens.

We live close to the Dublin Botanical Gardens. We happened to see signs for this on the way home and popped in. Lovely coffee shop on site and we were early so not too busy. I'm not a fan of the Brambles franchise but this one was really nice and the staff were very friendly.

We walked around the tree section first which was average but the bedding area was such an amazing surprise then!

Lots of picnic areas and clean toilets. OPW site so no charge

Just over an hour from the city centre and we'll definitely travel again

We visited these botanic gardens after a stay in Avoca. Unfortunately the weather was not great, cold windy and wet. Although thankfully it stayed mostly dry during our stroll around the grounds. And our experience was wonderful. We had the place to ourselves (probably due to the weather!) and it was so lovely to take our time looking and smelling the vast amount of beautiful and extraordinary plants. As it was June, there were flowers everywhere. I can only imagine how the gardens would be on a warm sunny day. The cafe seemed lovely too, although we did not have anything there as we were just after having a big breakfast. Thank you to all at the botanic gardens. You've done an amazing job!!
