Spend a day at the Ewe Experience Gardens just outside Glengarriff on the Caha Pass Road to Kenmare
The Ewe Experience Gardens is Ireland’s only interactive sculpture garden and a must see for anyone interested in art, nature or a totally unique experience. It is the perfect destination for a memorable day out.
Set along a spectacular waterfall in the natural Eden of Glengarriff it offers the 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.
Enjoy the educational information boards, lots of family games and creative areas to make sculptures out of sticks and stones. Also the Ewe Bead workshop to design your own jewellery and a riverside tea garden

The setting of Glengarriff Woods Nature Reserve is spectacular, with the woods nestled in the sheltered glen opening out into Glengarriff Harbour. Above the woods rise the Caha Mountains, with their dramatic layers of sheer rock
Glengarriff Woods Nature Reserve covers some 300ha, with the dominant habitats being old oak woodland and young woodland which is regenerating in areas which have been cleared of non-native conifers over the last few years. The woods form one of the best examples of oceanic sessile oak woodland in Ireland, being rated second only in importance to the Killarney oakwoods. The Nature Reserve is part of the much larger Glengarriff Harbour & Woodlands Special Area of Conservation (SAC)
