After 10 gentle circuits you will reach the circular viewing platform at the top of the tower with 360° panoramic views over Avondale Forest Park, the Vale of Avoca, the Wicklow Mountains and beyond. You will be looking down on the tops of some of the mightiest trees in Ireland from this vantage point. You may also see Red Kites overhead – they have been reintroduced into the area and are thriving in Avondale. Don’t forget to take some photos but hold on tight to your phone or camera.
To continue the adventure, take the option to whizz back down to earth on the giant spiral slide inside the Viewing Tower. Alternatively continue back down the ramped boardwalk to the forest floor once more.
- The slide is an optional extra activity that costs €2pp payable at the slide.
- Due to unprecedented demand we are currently experiencing long queues (2hrs+) during peak times.
- In wet or humid conditions the slide needs to close for health and safety reasons.
- The slide is fun but it’s an additional extra on top of the core features of the treetop walk – the amazing views, the astounding architecture, getting back into nature and learning about local history, wildlife and the environment.
