Shekina Sculpture Garden is a unique and beautiful one acre garden, close to Glenmalure, in the heart of the #WicklowOutdoors.
Rose Martin of the Irish Examiner says ‘Catherine turned a visit into a little therapy session on the senses: being told to take time to be on your own, go barefoot to feel the grass, sense the air, hear the birds and listen to your senses. Tune in; turn on; drop out'.

This haven of tranquilly includes a stream with bridge, two ponds on different levels, a patio, gazebo, seating areas, shrub beds and undulating lawns.
