Beyond the Trees Avondale
Rathdrum, Co. Wicklow
Discover Ireland's exciting world class visitor experience at Beyond the Trees and venture upwards on the 1.3km treetop walk in Avondale Forest Park, County Wicklow.

Journey through the forest at Avondale, County Wicklow, and above a canopy of trees. The treetop walk culminates at the spectacular Viewing Tower, 38m above the forest floor with panoramic 360 degree views of the Wicklow Mountains and the Vale of Avoca.

To complete this innovative experience, you have the option to whizz back down the tower via the gigantic 90m spiral slide.

The spiral boardwalk of the Viewing Tower rises at a gentle angle, making it fully accessible for wheelchair users and families with prams or a children's buggy.

At Home with the Parnell's, features a newly imagined guided tour of the historic 18th century Avondale House that celebrates the heritage of the Parnell family. Hear all about the life and times of Charles Stewart Parnell, and the formidable women in his family.

Enjoy a taste of Wicklow at the Seed Café, stroll through the Walled Garden, visit the Coillte Pavilion and explore the forest trails.
