HORTICULTURAL TOUR OF DUBLIN ZOO with Curator of Horticulture Stephen Butler


*** Please note this is an ISBA Member only event. If you would like to become a member please visit our membership page ***

DATE: Friday 10 June: 6,30 pm sharp

This very special tour of Dublin Zoo should be a treat for artists and gardeners alike. Plants are extremely important at Dublin Zoo, providing the animals with naturalistic habitats and allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the animals’ world. Stephen Butler is a knowledgeable and entertaining guide.

6.30 pm Coffee, tea and biscuits at the Meerkat Restaurant
7.30 pm Tour begins and lasts approximately 2 hours


Cost: €20 per person – pre-booking and payment in advance. 

Since this is an ‘after-hours event’, security rules at the Zoo require that we submit a guest list in advance. If you would like to attend, please let us know as soon as possible, but no later than Sunday 15 May, whether you plan to attend and also whether you wish to bring one guest. Since priority will be given to ISBA members, we would like to get a rough idea of numbers before confirming guest bookings and asking you to make any payment. Once we have a clearer picture of how many wish to attend, we will get back to you regarding payment methods, deadlines and any special instructions.

This will be a ‘rain or shine’ event, so please be prepared to bring rain gear!
