Overview

The Ewe is a home - open to the public, entirely created & run by a couple. Irelands only interactive sculpture garden is a must see for anyone interested in art, nature or a totally unique experience - the perfect destination for a relaxing, memorable day out. Set along a spectacular waterfall in the natural Eden of Glengarriff, it offers visitors a chance to step off the treadmill, slow down and rediscover our beautiful but vulnerable natural world. It is a journey like no other. Explore the meandering pathways and hidden corners, where curious creatures gaze back as you pass. Take the Evolution Walk through the Valley of Eden, weave your way over bridges, past humorous sculptures and discover a surprise at every turn. The creative haven of about six acres has been designed in four very different tiers up a mountainside - each with a theme: Water, Time, The Environment and Ancient Earth. Children welcome - please supervise for the safety & peaceful enjoyment of all.

Living locally, we still consider it a 'must' to visit this beautiful park every year! One of my kids' favorite parts, the 'sound cave' and the 'build your own stick and stone men' are right at the beginning, before you climb up, past the beautiful...More

Would not recommend this place to anyone, it's basically a forest that you have to pay in to, we visited with our two year old and were surprised when we were charged for him, not safe for anyone with mobility issues and did not keep...More

The Ewe is a nature/treasure trail, made for all; so we invest a huge amount of time, thought, care & insurance with ALL ages in mind. We invite to our home & guide, but we can't see for others. We've filled a mountain, but we...More

It all depends on the visitor. The four gardens are full of sculptures, narrative, interactive features & plenty to absorb. The Ewe is like an outdoor museum.. so it is more about how much can you take in, of the hundreds of... More
