The library of the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin is an important and valuable collection of botanical and horticultural books and periodicals.

Primarily the library serves the staff and horticultural students of the gardens but since it is the only library in Ireland that specialises in botanical and horticultural works many college students, botanists and plant enthusiasts come to avail of this unique collection.


Access is by appointment only.

If you wish to use the library please contact the library staff.
