Roundwood, historically known as Tóchar (Irish: an Tóchar, meaning “the causeway”), is a rural village in County Wicklow, Ireland. 238m above sea level. Roundwood is one of the highest villages in Ireland.
It is famous for its scenic beauty, nestled beside the Vartry Reservoirs and on the foothills of the Wicklow mountains. A great place to stop off before taking to the hills on bicycle or by walking, there are routes to suit all abilities from short ambles to more energetic hill walks around the beautiful ribbon lake of Lough Dan or Lough Tay.
There is a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, and good quality accommodation options.
Roundwood is twinned with Spèzet, a village in the northwest of Brittany, France.
