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.

Content not displayed properly - unreadable. Just adding to the comment from other users here. This is a simple to fix. The content is not re-sizing itself to the devices screen size. Mine is a typical sized smartphone - Android Moto G. Look forward to using this app when it is fixed.
Unusable Opens to a screen, but can do nothing from there. No menu access. Reliance on Adobe Air seems pointless. Shocking waste of civic funds.
Brilliant app shame that it only uses a tiny part of my screen! Please can you make this compatible for tablets! I am using a 10inch Nexus...
Needs to be reviewed Tiny display. Only uses 2/3 of the top left of my screen. Only app I know that demands you have Adobe Air. Pointless as it is unreadable.
Doesn't work Uses tiny portion of screen and demands large adobe air download. Waste of bandwidth
The app only displays in the corner of your screen and as you go through the tour all the information is not visible.using a HTC one.would be useful if these issues were fixed.
