Talbot Botanic Gardens, Dublin

The Talbot Botanic gardens, within the Malahide Castle Demesne contains almost 5,000 species, with a particular focus on Southern Hemisphere plants.

The gardens were designed by Lord Milo Talbot whose interest in gardening developed and led over the years, to the collecting of plants especially the rarer and more delicate kinds.

The gardens now cover an area of just over 8 hectares, with 7 hectares of shrubbery and the remainder a walled garden. Olearia, Hebe, Escallonia, Nothofagus, Syringia, Hypericum, Clematis species, Euphorbia, Eryngium, Hosta and Crocosmia spp all thrive in the Talbot Botanic Gardens.

There are also some notable trees in the gardens including a large Cedar of Lebanon, and an Oak as well as many magnolia, pines, junipers and acers.

Dublin County Council acquired the estate from the Talbot family in 1976 and was anxious that the tradition of ornamental gardening associated with Malahide Castle since the late 1800s, should continue.
