Boyne Valley Honey / AIB Apiary
Rooftop bee huts (apiaries) have become a fixture in cities such as London and Tokyo in recent years, and now Boyne Valley Honey and AIB have partnered to launch Ireland’s first rooftop apiary on a commercial building.
With the help and expertise of the Federation of Irish Beekeeping Associations (FIBKA), over 200,000 bees have been installed on the sixth storey roof of AIB Bankcentre in Ballsbridge, from where they will fly distances of up to 5km as they forage throughout Dublin.
Boyne Valley Honey has worked with Irish beekeepers for many years, helping to promote practices that increase the population of Irish honeybees. When they approached AIB with the idea for a rooftop apiary, we were delighted to get involved and support their work on sustainability – watch our short video and download our infographic to discover more.
