Journey through and above the forest

Experience the longest Treetop Walk in Ireland & the UK, a unique adventure above the canopy of the trees culminating at the magnificent 10-storey high Viewing Tower. This spectacular tower, standing 38m above the forest, reveals panoramic 360-degree views of the Wicklow Mountains. Children will discover epic adventures along the treetop walk with engaging activities, whilst adults enjoy an immersive experience uncovering the history of Avondale estate.

To complete the experience, everyone can whizz their way back down the gigantic 90m slide! Take the ‘beneath the trees’ trail back to the walled garden and enjoy a complimentary self-guided tour of the Coillte Pavilion. Learn about the evolution of forestry in Ireland along with Coillte’s work throughout the past, the present and the future sustainable plan for Irish forests. Afterwards, discover a taste of Wicklow at the Seed Café, where the culinary team use locally sourced ingredients to prepare seasonally inspired menus. The view here extends out onto the picturesque walled garden featuring an adventurous playground for the little ones to explore.

Check out the stimulating sensory garden in the courtyard, enjoy a picnic and discover an abundance of forest walking trails too.
