About Ewe Experience

Often described as ‘Ireland’s Eden’, The Ewe is an innovative series of gardens along a one km trail combining nature, art, science, narrative and humour. An artist’s home, it has evolved slowly over 25 years into an interactive open-air natural-history museum, with a twist.

Set along a spectacular mountain waterfall, the four themed gardens lead you on an intriguing exploration – back in time and back to nature. Widely featured in the media nationally and internationally; it is a playful, creative and relaxing experience for all.

Visitors enter Falling Water Garden, before crossing the waterfall into the Timeless Glen, a shady forest clearing. The trail meanders on up through the Environmental Forest, where many sculptures are made from re-cycled materials, to finally reach the Valley of Eden which bathed in lush Jurassic planting enjoys spectacular views to the mountains and the sea.
