Dublin: Botanic Gardens

One of the best audio tours around.
Una Mullaly, The Irish Times

Meet the world’s loneliest plant!

Vicious plants that can eat sheep, the philosopher’s stone (where Wittgenstein sat), Irish bananas, and the loneliest plant in the world…. just some of over 30 ‘short stories’ you’ll hear in our new audio tours of the National Botanic Gardens at Glasnevin.  And all to the delightful accompaniment of Thomas Moore’s famous song, The Last Rose of Summer.
