National Botanic Gardens

National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin
Plants, people and history

The perfect companion for a visit to the gardens, packed with fascinating stories and treasures and over 200 years of history. 

> Meet the loneliest plant in the world
> Visit the glasshouse that is an architectural treasure
> See the ‘Last Rose of Summer’
> Hear about plants that eat sheep . . . and much more.

Enthusiastically narrated by the gardens' director, Matthew Jebb, and award-winning heritage writer, Mary Mulvihill, the guide also features Thomas Moore's famous melody, The Last Rose of Summer.

The app combines three colour-coded audio tours of the gardens, with additional information, images and archive photographs. The Green tour explores the historic glasshouses and exotic plants.  The Yellow tour is an easy stroll around the garden’s historic highlights.  The Red tour takes you to the river, to explore wildlife, plant hunting, and even philosophy. 

You can use the app to plan a visit, or to explore the gardens, or as a souvenir afterwards. The app requires a 3G connection to the Internet, and the audio is best enjoyed using headphones.

Developed for the National Botanic Gardens by Ingenious Ireland, with a grant from the Cultural Technology Grant Scheme 2010 from the Department of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
