Hanging Gardens of Dublin

Blooming Bunting launched The Hanging Gardens of Dublinas an experimental vneture in May 2015. Inspired by a belief that everything we do has an impact on our environment, Blooming Bunting called for ‘nature inspired’ bunting to help enliven and transform a dreary lane beside Dublin Castle.  

Presented as a creative, green, community inclusive project, The Hanging Gardens of Dublin set out believing in the kindness of people.
