Roundwood, at 239 metres above sea level, is one of the highest villages in Ireland and is located on the main route from Dublin to Glendalough. The Gaelic name ‘An Tochar’ meaning causeway refers to stones and trees laid across wet and boggy ground to provide crossing points for travellers in the past. The Scenic Vartry Reservoirs adjoin the village while a few miles away are spectacular Loughs Dan and Tay nestling in the Wicklow Mountains.
Today Roundwood is a haven for walkers, cyclists, anglers and golfers. This pleasant and traditional village is the ideal base from which to explore the breath-taking natural beauty of the Wicklow Mountains, including walking the Wicklow Way. Enjoy the traditional Irish welcome in our atmospheric pubs with quality food and good pints!
