Embrace the Magic of the Night with Treetop Night Lights at Beyond the Trees Avondale.

When the sun sets and the stars begin to twinkle, something enchanting happens at Beyond the Trees Avondale. We’re thrilled to introduce “Treetop Night Lights,” a captivating nocturnal adventure that unfolds among the majestic trees of Avondale Forest Park.

Imagine walking amidst the treetop canopy at night, a mere hour’s drive from bustling Dublin, in the heart of the tranquil Wicklow countryside. As you ascend nearly 40 meters above the forest floor, you’ll discover a world bathed in gentle, mesmerizing light. This journey invites people of all ages and abilities to draw closer to nature, even after darkness falls, and it’s completely accessible, including for buggies and wheelchairs.

As you embark on your adventure, you’ll encounter a three-dimensional stag guarding the forest’s entrance, joined by other local creatures like the majestic red kite, the sly fox, and the playful squirrel. But Treetop Night Lights isn’t merely about the illumination; it’s about celebrating the forest’s essence. Picture yourself suspended within the treetop canopy, surrounded by the night-time’s flora and fauna. Glistening lights guide your way, reminiscent of fireflies in the night. The forest awakens, its sounds, scents, and sensations more vivid, especially during winter. While wandering through the trees and descending into an  underground tunnel, take a moment to soak in the woodland’s tranquil whispers. This enchanting adventure is perfect for families and friends to experience together during the winter season.
