atest press release from Visit Wicklow, issued on Friday, June 24th 2022…
Ireland’s most exciting new visitor destination, Beyond The Trees has now opened at Avondale Forest Park, Rathdrum.
Beyond the Trees Avondale features the longest Treetop Walk in Ireland and the UK, at 1.3km, bringing visitors on an adventure through and above the trees, the journey culminating with an impressive Viewing Tower.
Here, the magnificent architectural tower standing 38m above the forest, will reveal panoramic 360-degree views over the Wicklow Mountains, the Avonmore River, and the Vale of Avoca. To complete this innovative experience, both adults and children will have the option to continue the adventure and whizz their way back down the tower via the gigantic 90m spiral slide!
Enjoy a bite to eat at the Seed Café overlooking the Walled Garden and children’s playground. Take a complimentary self-guided visit to the Coillte Pavilion to learn about the evolution of forestry in Ireland along with Coillte’s work throughout the past, the present and the plans for the future.
From the Walled Gardens there is access to the Treetop Walk, the sensory garden and many forest walking trails.
