The Irish National Stud in Tully, Kildare, is a unique attraction enjoyed by visitors from all over the world, and is home to magnificent horses and exquisite gardens, including serene Japanese gardens complete with red lacquered arched bridges. For more than a century Irish National Stud has been a fully operational stud farm, aiming at producing the best thoroughbreds to race in Ireland and abroad. The Irish National Stud is not just an excellent equine centre, as apart from the beautiful Japanese gardens, visitors will enjoy a spiritual experience in St Fiachra's Garden, which was designed in 1999, and named in honour of St. Fiachra, the patron saint of gardeners. This splendid attraction clearly reflects the essence of the natural beauty of Ireland. There is a nature trail through St Fiachra's Garden, and school children delight in identifying trees and establishing their ages and learning about swan life. The stunning gardens at Irish National Stud provide great photo opportunities of a magical wedding day. We look forward to welcoming you to Irish National Stud for a truly unique and enjoyable experience.
