The Ewe Experience, Glengarriff

4.5
#2 of 11 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.

  • 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.
  • It was ok, ridiculously expensive though. €25 for the family of 4. One of which was 10 months old and in a buggy so he and his mother could only wait at the bottom for us. It's the kind of thing would have been cool if it was free or a fiver maybe. It's essentially a small forest walk with random artwork scattered through the trees.
  • A hidden gem Omg amazing inspirational out of the ordinary the setting of this garden is one of a kind with a stream/ river going threw the gardens !!!! 2 hour time allowance to get around these gardens. All the sculptures are designed & made by the couple who own the place. Children will love it
  • I love this place. Go every year and always find something new
  • Amazing place. Amazing at every turn. A must go to for everyone
