Last updated: 18th September 2008


Opened in 2000 the visitor centre combines a lecture hall, restaurant and display area with exhibits relating to the history and purpose of the gardens.

A series of 12 portraits by Anna O'Leary, show notable scientists and innovators associated with the development of Botany, as well as the establishment and growth of the National Botanic Gardens.

A head of the famous Giant Irish Deer hangs on the wall. This male skull originally hung in Kilmacurragh House, which today is a satellite garden of the National Botanic Gardens.

There are links to further information about our opening times, where to find the gardens, and upcoming events.
