Originally meaning ‘The Causeway’, the quaint village of Roundwood in County Wicklow, ‘The Garden of Ireland’, is situated along the main route from Dublin to Glendalough and is home to a charming selection of shops and pubs. Roundwood, and the surrounding areas, are rich with woodlands, lakes and mountains, making this part of Ireland one of the most scenic. Lough Tay, one of the most photographed places in Ireland, is a hugely popular attraction and it is no wonder why, with mountain peaks, mirror like lakes and colourful foliage, it truly is iconic. The village of Roundwood, one of the highest villages in Ireland peaking at 238metres above sea level, is only a 25 minute drive to the delightful seaside town of Bray and roughly an hour from the capital. A wonderful place to explore this breathtaking county.
