The Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens
The Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens are set in the beautiful seaside town Tramore, County Waterford, Ireland. These stunning Japanese Gardens reflect the life and extensive wanderings of Patrick Lafcadio Hearn (Koizumi Yakumo), who grew up in Ireland, and whose life journey embraced several parts of the world. The gardens pay homage to the fame he attained in Japan through his incomparable literary descriptions of the people, customs and culture of that country. Your journey takes you through the Victorian Garden, American Garden and Greek Garden eventually arriving in the Japanese Garden which features many Japanese plants and Japanese architectural features. The Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens are a haven of beauty and tranquility for all who visit. Children are introduced to the wonderment of the gardens through a special discovery trail, secret pathways, woodlands and Hearn’s fairytales and folklore.
The Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens Tramore are part of Ireland’s Ancient East Touring Region.
