We enjoyed reading about the plants and the history of how they have been used for poison accidentally or purposefully. It was especially interesting to see which plants were locked up more (like marijuana!)

The Poison Garden is part of the Blarney Castle grounds. Your admission to the castle gets you in. Take a quick stroll through, but don't touch! Small placards placed throughout the gardens detail each plant.

It should take you about thirty minutes if you go slowly. If the line into the castle is long, consider doing the gardens first.

Crazy to take a walk through a garden and have all the plants be deadly! It's on the grounds of the Blarney Castle. Take a look, but don't touch!!

Hinter den Zinnen der Burg Blarney versteckt, findet man den Poison Garden. Betreten auf eigene Gefahr!. In diesem Garten sind die Pflanzen so gefährlich und giftig, dass sie in großen Käfigstrukturen gehalten werden müssen. Dieser Teil des Geländes der Burg (siehe oben) steht im Kontrast zu den hellgrünen Landschaften rundherum. Es enthält eine Sammlung von Giftpflanzen aus der ganzen Welt, darunter Wolfsbane, Mandrake, Ricin, Opium und Cannabis. Viele von ihnen sind mit Informationen über ihre Toxizität und traditionelle und moderne Verwendung gekennzeichnet. Eine große Anzahl von Pflanzen, von denen wir heute wissen, dass sie giftig sind, wurden einst als pflanzliche Heilmittel für alle Arten von Leiden eingesetzt.
