Local Area Attractions

Avondale House, (within walking distance) once the home of Charles Stewart Parnell, one of the greatest political leaders of Irish History.

Glendalough: "the glen of the two lakes", an ancient monastic settlement with two clear water lakes lying beneath the sheer cliffs of a deep valley carved out by glaciers during the Ice Age. The monastic settlement has been a centre for pilgrims and visitors since its foundation by St. Kevin in the 6th century. Once the monastic capital of Europe, Glendalough now attracts up to 500,000 visitors annually.

Wicklow Mountains National Park, Laragh: The Wicklow Mountains National Park was established in 1991 and is one of six National Parks in Ireland. The Park consists of a core area of 3,700 ha around the Upper Lake at Glendalough and the mountains around the Glenealo River to the west. A number of other upland areas have been acquired, the largest of which is Liffey Head Bog. The total area of the park is about 20,000 ha at present.

Brittas Bay Beach: Brittas Bay, one of the finest beaches on the east coast of Ireland is one of the most popular beach for day-tripping Dubliners with a 2 mile/3.2km stretch of powdery sand and sand dune system.

Greenan Farm Museum & Maze: The farm museum presents exhibits going back over 200 years when traditional hill farming used only the horse. The maze was planted in 1988. A stream flows through it to a pond in the circular centre which hardly surprisingly is difficult to find. There are tea-rooms in the traditional cottage.

Avoca Village: Location of the very popular BBC TV Series "Ballykissangel". The village sets include the Church of Saints Mary and Patrick built circa 1862 and "Fitzgeralds" the local watering hole. Avoca is situated in a picturesque valley, which extends from the Meeting of the Waters to Woodenbridge and is the focal point for routes from Arklow, Aughrim, Woodenbridge, Rathdrum and Redcross

The Meeting of the Waters, Avoca: 3km north of Avoca, the Avonmore and Avonbeg rivers come together to form the river Avoca. Thomas Moore is said to have written the words of the very famous Irish Melody, "The Meeting of the Waters" here. "There is not in this wide world a valley so sweet, As that vale in whose bosom the bright waters meet; Oh! The last rays of feeling and life must depart Ere the bloom of that valley shall fade from my heart" - Extract: Thomas Moore "the Meeting of the Waters"

Mount Usher Gardens, Ashford: The lovely Mount Usher Gardens which are situated along the banks of the Vartry River at Ashford are very popular with visitors to the ‘Garden’ county of Ireland. Mount Usher is a Robinsonian garden dating from approx 1860. The gardens measure 20 acres & contain over 5,000 different species of plants & trees

Powerscourt House & Gardens: One of the World's Great Gardens. Powerscourt is situated 19km (12 miles) south of Dublin in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains. Its blend of formal gardens, sweeping terraces, ornamental lakes together with rambling walks and over 200 varieties of trees and shrubs make for a worth while way to laze away a quiet afternoon. The 18th Century Palladian House also now incorporates an innovative shopping experience, terrace cafe and house exhibition and is well a visit.


Rathdrum is an ideal base for exploring Wicklow by car, bicycle, horse or on foot. It is also a haven for the fishing and golf enthusiast with The Avonmore River Game Angling Club located 1.4km from Rathdrum, Driven shoot in Castle Howard 4km and Coolattin estate 20Km.
