Located just three kilometers from Dublin city center, the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin are renowned for their exquisite plant collections, featuring over 15,000 plant species and cultivars from diverse habitats worldwide. The gardens boast a stunning collection of historic glasshouses, which have been exquisitely restored and planted, with Richard Turner's Curvilinear Range and the Great Palm House among the most notable, both having won an award for excellence in conservation architecture.

Conservation is central to the life of the gardens, and Glasnevin is home to more than 300 endangered plant species, including six that have already gone extinct in the wild. Since 1854, the gardens have been closely associated with their counterpart in Kilmacurragh, County Wicklow. However, unlike its Wicklow branch, the National Botanic Gardens provide a serene and beautiful green space in the heart of Dublin.
