Ireland's Eden, this award winning garden has been 25 years in the making


This award winning garden has been 25 years in the making. It is a unique creative treat - a wonderful escape for a day out that has been thoughtfully designed for all ages.

Art and nature compliment each other in Ireland’s only interactive sculpture garden. It is the private home of artist Sheena Wood and Kurt Lyndorff, but is open to visitors all summer.

The Ewe Experience includes a great educational science walk and a poetry trail, intriguing sculptures and mysteries to solve. Over 200 educational boards with information and illustrations about the environment, plants, animals and natural and human history guide visitors through the extraordinary gardens. The interactive sculptures include life’s treadmill, which visitors can spin, and an intriguing glass magnifying wall, which distorts the faces of visitors into monsters, or another reflector where visitors get a unique perspective on themselves.

Visitors of all ages will enjoy the one kilometre walk through four gardens, dotted with mind challenging games, creative areas and story boards for a relaxing learning experience like no other. The four separate gardens of around five acres are set along a waterfall, that cuts its way down the Esk mountain valley into the glen of Glengarriff.

Falling Water Garden


In Falling Water Garden a vain emu, a sun bathing rhino and other humorous sculptures emerge amongst grasses and bamboo.

Timeless Glen


Bridges lead you across the waterfall to new discoveries in the Timeless Glen, a shady forest clearing with more sculptural surprises. Follow the Yarn Spinner’s trail of playful poetry or simply enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.

Environmental Forest


Meander up into the Environmental Forest, where all the sculptures are made from re-cycled materials. For story lovers information on plants, animals, natural history and the environment give food for thought along the way.

Valley of Eden


The journey continues high up into Valley of Eden with spectacular views to the mountains and sea. Follow Evolution Walk which tells the story of Earth from bacteria and dinosaurs to humans, and gives you a chance to meet your ancestors. Or come face to face with the most destructive animal ever.
