Irish National Stud and Gardens – The Japanese Gardens and St. Fiachra’s Garden

The iconic Japanese Gardens in the grounds of The Irish National Stud and Gardens are one of the oldest and finest Japanese Gardens in Europe. Designed by Japanese master horticulturist Tassa (Saburo) Eida, constructed between 1906-1910, they structurally portray the embodiment of the spirit and its journey through human existence. 

St. Fiachra’s Garden was designed by Professor Martin Hallinan in 1999 and depicts the natural Irish landscape complete with monastic cells and a fairy trail. The garden commemorates St. Fiachra, the patron saint of gardeners.

Opening times: February to early November. Half price entry for RHSI members.
