Every nation needs a great botanic garden, and Ireland’s is a world beater. 19th-century in character, the great treasure is the famous curvilinear palm house. This is surrounded by traditional herbaceous and rock gardens, with several other glasshouses now in excellent order and beautifully planted. Now that visitor facilities have improved, this civilised and fascinating place has finally achieved its considerable potential. It’s a short bus journey north of the city centre, and entry is free!
