The Ewe Experience

The  Ewe Experience in Glengarriff, West Cork is a unique combination of nature and art and Ireland’s only interactive sculpture garden. Adults and children can enjoy challenging games and the creative areas for a wonderful unique experience. 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 that your family will enjoy.

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.

All ages will enjoy this fun, fantasy filled walk, with educational information about everything wild and wonderful from water to Wollumi pines, beetles to bower birds, fish, flora, fauna, natural history and the environment.

Story and poetry lovers can follow the Yarn Spinner’s trail. Play the interactive games, find the dinosaur tracks or unlock the vault to see the most destructive animal that ever lived. Amble the fern labyrinth, pass the time with the human sundial, build your own Ewe Create sculpture or just relax by the waterfall and try some edible art, tea and cakes at the riverside tea garden.
At The Ewe Experience they welcome large groups and tours and they ask that you ring in advance and make a booking.
Family Fun Tip:- Uneven pathways and steps, so comfortable footwear recommended.
