The Ewe is a home - open to the public, entirely created & run by a couple. Ireland's only 'Interactive Natural History Museum-on-a-Mountain' is a must see for anyone interested in art, nature or a totally unique experience - the perfect destination for a relaxing, memorable day out. Set along a spectacular waterfall in the natural Eden of Glengarriff, the one-two hour trail 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. 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 & 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 & Ancient Earth. Children welcome - please supervise for the safety & peaceful enjoyment of all.

Interesting and uniqe place. We visited during the summer and it's well done. Just bring your waking shoes but not the buggy.

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 through makes is something new to make you smile...More

Unlike any place I’ve ever been to. Creative, fun, thought provoking, and an enjoyable walk through the woods.

It was a wonderful experience that we would all thoroughly recommend. The imagination, the thought and the sheer brilliance that went into creating this, was immense. There were 9 of us, ranging in age from 65 down to 14, and it was fab. We didn't...More

The children loved the rambling walk through the woods and many of the adults did, as well. This would be difficult with a stroller or wheelchair, however.

It depends on how quickly you want to go through the gardens. There is lots to see and read. You could walk it quite quickly in thirty mins easily but you would miss all the treasures along the way. Take your time and enjoy... More

It all depends on the visitor. The four gardens are full of sculptures, narrative, interactive features & plenty to absorb. The Ewe is like an outdoor museum.. so it is more about how much can you take in, of the hundreds of... More
