Local Attractions

We are ideal for visiting Avoca, Avondale, the historical Glendalough monastic settlement, The Meetings of the Waters made famous by poet Sir Thomas Moore, or touring the Wicklow mountains via the stunning Sally Gap and Wicklow Gap.  We would be delighted to help you plan a tour of Wicklow’s lesser known scenic areas.

Other things to see nearby are the majestic Ashford Gardens, Avoca Handweavers and Avoca village, the setting for the BBC’s Ballykissangel.  Enjoy a walk in the grounds of nearby Avondale House, the stately home of Charles Stuart Parnell, a significant figure in Irish History.

The historic village of Rathdrum has been a picturesque location for many Hollywood block buster films including Micheal Collins, Angela’s Ashes and of course the Spice Girls music video!!  There are a number of restaurants and pubs offering food and entertainment.

There are numerous golf courses and hill walks nearby.
