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'.

The garden features a collection of 15 modern sculptures by Irish artists – Michael Casey, Fred Conlon, Cliodna Cussen, James Gannon, Leo Higgins, Anne Murphy, Paul Page, Noel Scullion, Alexander Sokolov, Imogen Stuart, Ken Thompson, Alexandra Wejchert, Elke Weston.

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

Admission: Entrance by donation to St. Vincent de Paul.
