Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens

Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens Reviews

  • This is a very nice place in Tramore and well worth the trip from Waterford City. You can see different types of gardens (American (yes, really), Greek and of course Japanese). If you want to spend some time to relax, do not visit on a summer weekend, since there is a lot of background noise from the beach. You are in Ireland after all. I would recommend to google the story of Lafcadio for a better understanding of the man and his times.

  • Absolutely fantastic spot to visit. It rained while there and even that didn't put a damper on the experience. The staff that we met were wonderful, super friendly and helpful. I already can't wait to visit again for beautiful nature and lemon drizzle cake!!

  • This is a jewel of a garden! Beautiful and tenderly maintained. Really worth exploring the individual garden spaces and taking time here. The gardener's were incredibly helpful, friendly and knowledgeable with our plant questions. Take time visit this amazing garden. PLUS! Nice tea room with wonderful views across the sea.

  • What a beautiful, tranquil and peaceful setting. The gardens are a wonderful sight to behold. It was so calming and whilst walking on the meandering paths via brooks, waterfalls, etc, the love story of it's being unfolds. Staff very welcoming and informative, cakes are mouth watering and our tour ended with us being photographed in the kimonos supplied by the gardens. Highly recommend, a must see ❤️

  • Absolutely beautiful place and lovely staff too. It is a gem hidden away from the town and beach yet not that far a walk or drive from main streets etc The story of the inspiration behind these gardens and the man who they are in memory of is truly fascinating. Highly enjoyed it.
