Avondale Forest Park
Avondale Forest Park is a woodland estate located on the west bank of the River Avonmore in County Wicklow, Ireland. Avondale Forest Park is the birthplace of statesman Charles Stewart Parnell, which is now the Parnell Museum. The park is also regarded as the birthplace of Irish forestry as tree species from around the world were planted there from the 1770s onwards.
Most recently, an award-winning visitor destination ‘Beyond the Trees,’ has opened which is a spectacular Treetop Walk and Viewing Tower attraction. Beyond the Trees is located in the heart of the forest on the Avondale Forest Park premises.
