Charity Day cake bonanza

Glorious sunshine graced our annual charity tea party and we managed to raise a total of 600 Euro.

This year it was in aid of RehabCare in Bantry, who benefitted from the garden entry fees all day and the afternoon cake sales.

Emer and Sinead from Rehabcare had baked an amazing selection of cakes, which delighted the visitors who enjoyed drinks and cake by the gently flowing river, with no wind or rain to spoil the day.

RehabCare Services based in Dromleigh South, Bantry, provide support services to a wide range of people within County Cork and predominantly West Cork. They work closely with many local organisations and facilities who provide services to the clients.

The current services include two Day Resource Centre Services, one for clients with physical and sensory disabilities and the other for clients with a mental health and or intellectual disability. Bantry Respite Service provides a three night four day respite to clients with a physical and sensory disability. The Home and Community Support Service supports clients to live independently within their own homes and with community integration in their own local communities in West Cork.

RehabCare Bantry provides support to over 100 clients between the ages of 18-65 years and is a non-profit organisation.

26th season

This is the 26th season for The Ewe Experience in West Cork and in that time we have seen many new businesses come and go. 

After another winter of hard work there are again this year lots of new surprises, both installations and sculptures for visitors to enjoy. One of the favourites might be the glass pane with masks, set next to the distorted mirrors and the mirror glass tube which was very popular last year. They all give people a whole new perspective on themselves and their self image.

A lot of wooden installations came to the end of their natural life span at about the same time this winter, so a huge amount of extra work was involved and visitors probably won't even notice.

We get many calls off season asking "can't we just come to have a look and walk around?" But most of the trail is either taken down or covered up to protect them during winter. 

Shortly before re-opening a huge Macrocarpa tree came down on top of a pathway, which presented yet another challenge to deal with.

We have also worked on the infrastructure to improve the flow of visitors, with a brand new exit bridge.

Now we're open and we look forward to welcoming people from all over the world.
