DISCOVER THE STORY OF LAFCADIO HEARN THROUGH ELEVEN UNIQUE GARDEN AREAS
The Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens are set in the beautiful seaside town of Tramore, County Waterford, Ireland. These stunning 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.
Follow Lafcadio Hearn’s life journey, first through the Victorian Garden, then to the American and Greek gardens, until you eventually arrive in the Japanese gardens which feature 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 these magical gardens through a special children’s discovery trail, secret pathways, woodlands and Lafcadio Hearn’s fairytales and folklore.
The Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens Tramore are part of Ireland’s Ancient East Touring Region.
These gardens are managed by Tramore Development Trust. Tramore Development Trust is registered as a charity with the Revenue Commissioners under Charity Number CHY14771
