FAMILY FRIENDLY FUN
THIS year the Festival will kick off with a guided tour of Glendalough Estate on Wednesday, July 31and will end with the hugely popular Roundwood Street Festival Day on Sunday, August 4.
As arrangements fall into place we will update our website www.roundwood.ie and our Facebook page, so please check back for updates as we near the kick off date.
One of the highlights of the Roundwood Festival is the canoe race on the Upper Vartry Reservoir. Registration for the race is at 4.30 p.m. on Saturday, August 5 at the Upper Vartry Dam (beside the Wicklow Angler’s boats). The competition is open to all swimmers aged of 13 or over. This year the competition has a special veteran class and rumour has it that there is serious training going on and an upsurge in the sale of rowing machines in the area!
If taking to the water isn’t your cup of tea then come over to cheer on the rest. There is ample parking at the Roundwood AFC football pitch or take a walk from the village on the recently resurfaced trail from Water’s Bridge on the Newtown Road.
