Excellent location with magnificent historic greenhouse. Well structured walks around the various parts of the gardens. Good restaurant available and also access to the cemetery next door in Glasnevin. Two venues sis by side.

We took the hop on bus all the way out to this stop, which adjoins the cemetery. It is a large collection of botanical houses with lots of gorgeous plants. Well worth the trip.

Spent a beautiful sunny afternoon walking around and taking photos. We went after the cemetery,so it was a real up. Leisurely walk, look, sit, see and watch. We took our first Uber back to our hotel.

These gardens are a bit of a hidden gem, once you find them you will not be disappointed. Choice of tea-rooms too.

If you are a keen Horticultralist then you will find all the plants most interesting. If you are simply looking for something to do, then maybe visit on the way to the airport as a stop off.

We didn't know what to expect but were more than pleasantly surprised. The rose garden was all in bloom and was beautiful. A wide variety of trees. The walled garden was a treat and the conservatories were excellent. Relaxing day spent among the beauty of...More
