Shekina Sculpture Garden lies in the peaceful Glenmalure Valley in County Wicklow, close to the Avonbeg River and under the shadows of Fananierin Mountain. Visitors can enjoy a collection of modern sculptures by Irish artists. Set within a one acre garden, which includes an undulating stream running through it feeding two ponds. There is a gazebo and various seating areas for visitors to sit back and relax in this peaceful area.
The most unique feature of this garden however is its collection of sculptures by modern Irish artists such as Michael Casey, Fred Conlon, Ken Thompson, Cliodna Cussen and James Gannon. The sculpture collection evolved over thirty years. Each sculpture has grown into the garden over time, just as the garden has embraced each sculpture.
The theme that runs throughout the sculptures is the story of creation, and a guided reflection on the sculptures is available. Time Out Days are also on offer, which provide an opportunity to be still in the beauty of Shekina Sculpture Garden.
Open from Fri to Sun, May to Sept. Please phone ahead. Group bookings possible.
Admission: Entrance by donation to St. Vincent de Paul.
