 Bat Roost Ireland is about the conservation of all Irish Bat species.We hope that through our own research and with your help we can collect enough information on the specific roosting needs of Irish bats that we can make a real difference.  We aim to provide everyone with practical information on bat boxes and bat houses including how to build, buy and locate a proper bat house so you can enjoy these mysterious and fascinating mammals from your own home at the same time be providing bats with a proper roost. We will discuss the pros and cons of bat houses and bat boxes. Our advice will be based on our own research, construction and monitoring bat roosts over the past 8 years and that of bat experts the world over. 
  •  All bat species in Ireland are now in decline.
  • By how much? We don’t actually know.
  • This is why Bat roost Ireland needs your help.
  • We need information on all types of artificial Bat roosts in Ireland. 
  • Their location, size, type whether or not they are being used by bats.
  • If you have a bat box or house please tell us about it.
  • It is essential if we are to plan a future with bats in our country that we are able to provide bat roosts that suit the needs of Irish bats.
  • Too many well intentioned people have erected poorly designed bat boxes with very disappointing results.
  • We would like to thank the Irish National Parks & Wildlife Service for their continued help and support in our projects
