#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.

  • Interesting and uniqe place. We visited during the summer and it's well done. Just bring your waking shoes but not the buggy.  more »
  • We stopped by spontaneously at the EWE Experience and decided to visit the gardens, not knowing what we would find inside. There is so much to see and experience there, between every bend that the way...  more »

  • Strange experience. Wouldn't call the owners particularly welcoming on arrival. Amazing art. Bit depressing in parts but very talented artists.
  • 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
