Fun Family Activities To Do In Wicklow
August 8, 2018 (No Comments) by Tahlia Peppard

Wicklow is a county in Ireland which is just south of the capital, Dublin. The region is full of amazing scenery, lush green grass (much like the rest of Ireland) and views that no camera could do justice too.

Wicklow comes from a background of rich heritage, friendly communities and a wide range of cultural and sporting activities for the whole family to enjoy. This brings me on to the topic of discussion for today; great family fun things to do in Wicklow.

1. Wicklow Fat Bike Adventures

FatBike Adventures do guided fatbike tours through some of Ireland’s Ancient East’s most incredible scenery – beaches, bogs, forests, mountains and snow are all places that their fatbike tours go. The fat bike adventure promises to be sociable and fun, but they ensure you are not pushed beyond your bike skill and fitness limit. By the sounds of it, this may suit a family with a tad older kids or at least ones that are able to cycle without supervision or help.

2. Powerscourt Waterfall and Gardens

Powerscourt Waterfall and Gardens will satisfy all ages and offer a great day out. Powerscourt Waterfall is Ireland’s highest at 121m (398ft.) and is 6km from the Main Estate. It is set in one of Ireland’s most beautiful parklands at the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains. This offers a great environment for some family bonding where ice-creams, barbecues, cafes and lovely scenic walks are all available. Take time to explore the pathways that meander through the flora and fauna, walk along the woodland pathways and listen to the birdsong.

3. Wicklow Irish Fairy Trails

Irish Fairy Trails are a great day out in Russborough House, with your young family – this boasts to be some of the best fun you can have and it is free! The fairies have been living in their quaint village for nearly 200 years and when you visit the fairies, you take part in their magical fairy trail, you are able to learn the fairy language, enjoy fairy games and puzzles. Searching for the fairy homes on the Irish Fairy Trails is a great family fun adventure.

4. Clara Lara

I know what you’re thinking, what an odd name, but wait til you hear what this activity entails. Clara Lara Fun Park and Outdoor Adventure Centre is an excellent way to have some healthy and wet fun. Clara Lara is the place to come for a day away from the world of screens.

Children can play outdoors, run around, use their imagination, stretch their physical fitness and not notice time going by. So many family friendly activities are available such as; an aqua shuttle, obstacles courses, amphicats, zip-lining, rope swinging and so much more.

5. Glenroe Open Farm

Glenroe open farm is situated in the picturesque village of Kilcoole, Co. Wicklow, this open farm offers easy access to a wide selection of farm animals. Children can roam around playing with their favourite furry animals, while parents look on and enjoy some relaxation time. Bring a picnic and have fun spending quality time together!

6. Greenan Farm

Situated in the beautiful countryside of the Wicklow hills, only an hour hour south of Dublin, you can spend the whole day here wandering around the farm in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There are loads of attractions here and something for everyone in the family to enjoy. This is a great day out for all the family, the farm is suitable for all ages, ranging from toddlers to senior citizens and more.

7. Avondale House and Forest Park

Finally we have the Avondale House and Forest Park. This Georgian house was built in 1777 and is found in the stunning forest park that stretches over 500 acres. There is plenty of wild life and plant life to be found in the park as well as some exotic trees. This would be an activity whereby you just enjoy each-others company and your surroundings. Bring a pack of cards or pack your badminton rackets and enjoy quality time together!

There you have it – some family fun filled adventures for you to go on, especially during the Summer when the weather gets warmer and the kids are off school. Enjoy!
