National Botanic Gardens of Ireland

Ireland's premier garden is a green oasis situated in the leafy suburb of Glasnevin, not far from Dublin city centre. It is just under 50 acres in size and home to over 17,000 different plant species. Famous for its Victorian glasshouses: the Curvilinear Range, designed by Richard Turner, and the Great Palm House, Ireland's only tropical rainforest. Outdoor features include the rose and rock gardens, double herbaceous borders, the pond and river walks, the organic fruit and vegetable garden and wild Ireland, the native conservation area.

Our sister Garden, the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland, Kilmacurragh, is located in Kilbride, Co. Wicklow (Junction 18 on the N11). It is the centrepiece of an eighteenth-century estate and is famous for its conifers, rhododendrons, meadows and double-borders.
