Spring is here and I thought a visit to the Irish National Botanic Gardens would be perfect.

  1. I was surprised the video didn’t mention WHERE the Irish National Botanic Gardens are located in Ireland. According to, “The National Botanic Gardens lie just 3.5 kilometers (2.2 miles) north of Dublin city centre…
    By Bus:
    #4 (St. Vincent’s Hospital, Lansdowne Road {Jury’s}, O’ Connell Street / Ballymun)
    #13 (Merrion Square, Pearse St, O’Connell St. / Poppintree)
    #19 (Bulfin road, Leonard’s Corner, O’Connell St. / Jamestown Rd., Tolka estate)
    #83 (Kimmage {Sundrive road, Rathmines} / Harristown {Ballygall Road East})

    By Car:
    From the south, or City centre: leave Dublin via the Drumcondra road (N1) and turn left at Botanic Avenue, just before crossing the river Tolka, ALTERNATIVELY, leave the city via Phibsborough, on the Finglas road (N2), turning right onto Botanic Road just after Hart’s Corner, after passing over the Royal Canal. The Botanic Gardens are close to the junction of Botanic Avenue and Botanic Road. Car parking facilities are available for a flat fee of € 2.”

  2. Right you are, Thomas. It’s also right next to Glasnevin Cemetery, so while you’re out there, I’d do both. Although the two are side-by-side, there is a bit of a walk between entrances.
