The National Stud and Japanese Gardens are well known all over the world and are a must for anyone who visiting Ireland. The gardens themselves were first inaugurated in 1906 and were completed in 1910 and they promote calm and tranquillity to the 150,000 visitors who pass through the gates each year.
In addition to the Japanese Gardens there is also St Fiachra’s Garden which celebrates the beauty of Ireland and it was created in 1999. Here you will feel as though you are a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the larger cities as you escape into traditionally Irish scenery.
The Stud Farm is an interesting attraction here as it is a real living and working stud farm that will show you how these animals are raised and trained. Horse racing fans will love this part of the visit as there is so much to see and do. One of the horses to be born at the farm and raised here is Sea The Stars who won the horse of the Year title in 2009, other famous horses include Sun Chariot. For more on horse racing the Horse Museum is ideal and this has exhibits that will take you through all aspects of owning horses, horse racing and more.
All in all the National Stud and Japanese Gardens present themselves as a great way to spend a day while you are in Ireland and they can be enjoyed by groups, families and couples at any time of the year.
