Free

*Places Available By Booking Only*

Join the Irish Wildlife Trust on a nocturnal tour of Dublin’s National Botanic Gardens.

The event will allow visitors a glimpse at what goes on in the gardens after the gates close and darkness falls. Find out which creatures roam this beautiful garden by night.

At this event, you will learn about Ireland’s nocturnal biodiversity in this historic site. We will use bat detectors to hopefully hear the calls of our native bats as they forage over the garden pond and between the majestic trees.

Event participant will get a chance to use our bat detector devices to try out finding bats using their echolocation calls. While on the tour, we will keep our eyes and ear open for other creatures such as badgers, foxes and owls.

The event will be taking place at nightfall. Participant should dress for evening weather and bring a small torch for their own use.

Booking is essential for this event so please contact botanicscentre@opw.ieĀ  to book.
