  • Everyone has mentioned the butterflies however, don't forget to visit the scented garden area outside. The herbs and shrubs gave off an amazing scent when we visited in August this year.  more »

  • Beautiful butterflies of all shapes, sizes and colours fluttering past all the time during the visit. You can see butterflies at all stages of the life cycle, fascinating to watch and absolutely mesmerising to see enormous butterflies suddenly land in easy reach in front of you, or if you are lucky, on you. Also vividly coloured little tree frogs, fish and praying mantis too. The praying mantis are separately contained and are not moving around freely in the main large butterfly enclosure that you walk through. Small gift shop if you like buying pretty butterfly themed gifts such as brooches, scarves and stationery. Lots of children's gifts to teach them about nature and insects. Separate garden area that you can walk around or sit in, benches to sit on and areas for children to run around, ideal for hide and seek. Staff are friendly and very welcoming, lots of interesting educational leaflets about nature, you could easily spend half a day here particularly if you like taking butterfly photos or just enjoy watching them. Well worth a visit.
  • Not bad, a bit expensive (€ 8 admission) to see a very large aviary, possibility to see a documentary and stroll in the garden. However good experience as we have not used to see in such a big and beautiful butterflies. Not a lot of information on them, no accompaniment. But good time to spend with family.

  • That was awesome. It is wonderful to see butterflies also beautiful in freedom and also near us. There are of all sizes. It's really very very pretty.

  • The diversity of the species presented is nice to see. Small greenhouse but well appointed. There is a video in the garden. You will find a small maze of bamboo ideal for children. To discover...

  • Very nice with very interesting explanations. The magic as soon as we enter the greenhouse to butterflies, get them out there first then they touch us and one is amazed to see their colors and their ability to blend into their environment.
