For 10 years, Sheena Wood and her writer husband, Kurt, ran the successful Ewe Art Centre on the Mizen Peninsula. After two years of building work, the Glengarriff sculpture garden reopened in 2006 as a continuation of that work. The indoor and outdoor artworks are by Sheena, a prolific artist with an impressive range of work from paintings to textiles, mixed media, mosaics, ceramics and sculpture.
At The Ewe, the sound of trickling water accompanies guests as they cross the bridge into the garden. The waterfall cascades down beside Falling Water Lodge, a timber clad house, designed and built by the artist. Additionally, refreshments are on offer at the riverside café in the summer months.
The Ewe is open daily during the summer months and by appointment during the spring and autumn.
