Event description
A guided tour of the Vartry Reservoir, Roundwood, Co Wicklow. Flat, scenic and very interesting!

About this Event

Join ATGI guide and local resident Dairine Nuttall for a guided walk of one of the nicest looped walks in the country.

The Vartry Reservoirs have been supplying water to south Dublin since 1868 and even during construction, were a tourist attraction! Some of the land under the upper reservoir was compulsorily acquired from Dairine’s grandfather in the 1920’s.

  • Our route will take in the “small half” of the lower reservoir and the “big half” of the upper reservoir and will be approx.
  • 10 km. Allow 2.5/3 hours.
  • Walking shoes or runners must be worn and no dogs please.
  • Meet at 11 am OUTSIDE the Coach House, Roundwood, Co Wicklow – on the left as you come into Roundwood from the N11.

The tour will take 2/3 hours depending on pace of attendees. A moderate level of fitness is required.
