The National Botanic Gardens
The National Botanic Gardens are located in Glasnevin, County Dublin. The beautiful gardens are noted for their fine plant collections holding more than 15,000 plant species and cultivars from a variety of habitats from around the world.
The gardens are famous for their exquisitely restored historic glasshouses, notably the Turner Curvilinear Range and the Great Palm House, both recipients of the Europa Nostra award for excellence in conservation architecture.
Conservation plays an important role in the life of the botanic garden and Glasnevin is home to more than 300 endangered plant species from around the world including six species that are already extinct in the wild.
Admission is free. Car parking is available for a small fee. Glasshouses and Gardens are accessible for people with disabilities but there are some steep gradients.
The National Botanic Gardens can be easily reached by bus from The Morgan Hotel. The Dublin bus routes 83/83a, 9 and 155 are all within minutes’ walk from the Morgan Hotel, and stop at the Botanic Gardens. Our reception team will be more than happy to guide you in the right direction.
