National Botanic Gardens by Michael Foley

National Botanic Gardens is a green oasis situated in the leafy suburb of Glasnevin, not far from Dublin city centre. The garden is home to over 15,000 plant species and cultivars from a variety of habitats from all around the world. The jewel in the gardens’ crown is a set of exquisitely restored and planted historic glasshouses. Most notable among these are Richard Turner’s Curvilinear Range and the Great Palm House, both winners of an award for excellence in conservation architecture. Conservation plays an important role in the life of the gardens and Glasnevin is home to over 300 endangered plant species, 6 of which are already extinct in the wild. (Glasnevin, Dublin, Ireland)
