The Ewe Experience, Glengarriff

4.7
#2 of 9 in Things to do in Glengarriff
At The Ewe Experience, visitors can explore a natural garden infused with a wide array of artistic touches and general whimsy. A 1 km (0.6 mi) walk takes you through the four themed gardens and includes both a science trail and poetry trail. You're encouraged to interact with the different art pieces or pick up one of the games of solitaire or chess scattered throughout. In the Ewe Create area, you can construct your own sculpture out of natural materials. Bring a camera along to capture some quirky photos. Stop for a cup of tea and slice of cake at the on-site cafe. Sensible shoes are a good idea to help traverse the uneven footpaths. Put The Ewe Experience on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Glengarriff itinerary builder.

    I visited this park in the July 2017 together with my two daughters (12 and 14 years old). It was a day with Irish weather, it was raining so sometimes. You get a brochure in hand and some explanations along the way and is very nice welcome by the owners at the gate. The garden boasts the many large and small works of art, which integrate into the forest and nature. Explains too much to the sustainability to the flora and fauna, to the evolution and the protection of our natural resources, which is very informative. There are also poems that can be read in many places. A small jewelry shop rounds off the thing. The visit has made us a lot of fun and at the same time informed about interesting entertaining manner. At the end we talked very nice even with the owners. It was really nice and again thank you for the time.

    I would recommend visiting in the morning as parking is limited & there is a sign & you are also told there is a 2 hour time limit in place. You ring a bell & wait to be met where you pay & get a leaf...  more »

    One of the best parts of our trip to Kerry! And I am glad I went. On every corner you can find something to see. The artist is close by so you can also ask him questions. Every art piece has a plague attached close by with either some explanation or some additional information. The games have instructions. Kids will love this place. Toilets and a shop are provided.

    Kurt & Sheena recently hosted their annual Charity Tea Day on 10 June 2017 in aid of Cork ARC Cancer Support House's service in West Cork, and were so kind & welcoming to our supporters and volunteers. The gardens are just beautiful and well worth a visit when in Glengarriff / West Cork

    The Ewe Experience! Well its all in the Name! My self and Friend had our Ewe experience this summer just gone by. We arrived about midday which as a coincidence we met this fellow with a big camera which happened to be nationwide, that was a laugh. We met a gentleman called Kurt who told us where to start our trail. To be honest I'll have to go back it's fab, loads of imagination and works of art involving a lot of time love and hard work I'd say. Sculptors hidden every where, water fall going through and every step you take another surprise in front of you and all around the trail are games for young and old. Loads of trees of various different types. There is also a lovely area where you can get a bite to eat and a cup of tea. It's Stunning and educational for all to enjoy! Nice place for a school tour, loads to see. I'm definitely going back and the entrance fee is so reasonable. It's a magical place to visit and a wonderful experience.

    Quirky. Sculptures lurk throughout the gardens. A certain Trump is celebrated in milk cartons.
