National Botanical Gardens, Dublin Overview

Established in 1795, the National Botanical Gardens today are the centre of botanical research in the country. The gardens are made quite brilliantly, complete with glasshouses to cater to specific needs of some plants.

The garden today is home to more than 20,000 specimens of plants, which can be found all over the green expanse. Since it's establishment, it has gone through numerous renovations over the years after deteriorating due to negligence. It also contains a museum which displays a vast variety of plant products ranging from seeds to fruits. The Palm House and the Curvilinear Range are the two glasshouses currently functional in the garden, which have been refurbished a few times over the years due to the rotting of wood and iron used in their construction. Today, the entire complex serves to provide an interesting insight into plants and the field of botany.
