The Dublin Herb Bike is a mobile clinic providing free, herbal care and comfort to communities in need around Dublin.
This project is a combined effort of herbalists, health workers, and folks like YOU who want better for their community and are rolling up their sleeves to provide holistic support to those who need it most! Together we built this project from the street up, creating our medicines, building our kits, and fitting out the bike.
The Dublin Herb Bike is currently serving at the GPO (General Post Office) on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 8PM alongside Hope in the Darkness Soup Kitchen. We offer a variety of herbal remedies such as glycerite extracts, syrups, teas, capsules, hydrosols, aromatic inhalers and more.
We are appreciative of the support we have received from herbal colleagues and organizations over the years. A special thanks goes out to the Irish Register of Herbalists for their constant encouragement and support. And in 2021 we were the Inaugural International Winners of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists Award for ‘Herbalism in the Community’.
The Dublin Herb Bike is a volunteer run community project. All services and remedies are offered for free!

HerbShare Dublin Workshops
We strive for a model of healthcare that is based on solidarity and not charity. Our web of programming is built to spread the knowledge, share the costs, and give us all the opportunity to learn while supporting each other. Our workshops are sliding scale and helps to keep the Herb Bike rolling! Hope you can join us! Workshop and events are listed on the Dublin HerbShare Page.
MEDICINE MAKING WORKSHOPS
Join us at one of our Solidarity Medicine Making Workshops combining service with learning!
As we are committed to providing an alcohol-free clinic, we focus on creating an array of potent glycerite and vinegar extracts, capsules, tea and powder blends. At these workshops, usually held at the Fumbally Stables, we prepare remedies to stock the Dublin Herb Bike’s apothecary. Your registration fee helps to purchase the supplies needed to create beautiful and healing remedies for the Bike!
We offer these workshops a few times a year, to book a spot, please visit our HerbShare Dublin Page.
MEDICINAL PLANT RAMBLES
Join us at one of our Medicinal Plant Rambles and discover the remedies which grow all around us!
We will learn to identify many of the wild plants which call Dublin home and how you can incorporate them into your life! Plant Rambles are also a great way to meet other folks who are also interested in foraging, botany, and wild plant medicine.
Funds raised by Rambles go to support the Herb Bike! You can book into upcoming Rambles here.
Meet your green neighbors! There are wonderful medicinal and edible plants growing all around us, even right here in this urban jungle.
Learning our local plants improves our health, reduces oil consumption AND provides security in knowing that what you need is growing right out your backdoor.
We have added a new photo gallery page to the website where we have begun to document all of the lovely medicinal herbs we see growing around town!
Free + Low Cost Dublin Community Care Resources
The answer isn’t always a herb… sometimes what someone needs is a dental appointment, or a meditation session, or acupuncture. Sometimes someone needs a counseling session or just a decent meal! We have begun this listing in hopes of helping folks find the affordable care they need.
The information provided here has been pulled from a variety of sources, such as the web or word of mouth. Please help us to grow this resource!
