Day trip to Lafcadio Hearn Japanese gardens in Tramore

On 9th September 2018, Ireland Japan Association organised a day trip for its members and friends to Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens in Tramore, Co. Waterford.

We were happy to see so many IJA members, families and friends joining us and it definitely was a wonderful day spent together outdoors learning about the history of the gardens and exploring its beauty.

The Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens are set in the beautiful seaside town of Tramore and reflect the life of Patrick Lafcadio Hearn (Koizumi Yakumo), who grew up in Ireland, and whose life journey embraced several parts of the world.

Japanese gardens feature many Japanese plants and Japanese architectural features and are a haven of beauty and tranquility for all who visit. You will also find a beautiful traditional Japanese Tea Garden, a Stream Garden, ponds, a waterfall and an extensive woodland area. Children are introduced to these magical gardens through a special children’s discovery trail, secret pathways, woodlands and Lafcadio Hearn’s fairytales and folklore.

After the walk through the gardens, we were treated to a delicious Japanese lunch provided by Yamamori restaurants.

IJA would like to thank everyone who joined us for this amazing trip, everyone at Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens for hosting and guiding us through the gardens, and Yamamori Restaurants for providing us with delicious Japanese Bento lunchboxes.
