Djouce Woods Trails
Our walk takes us along the beautiful trails laid out by the Viscounts of Powerscourt. Their guests were taken on scenic drives through Djouce Woods to enjoy the pretty views over the valley and Powerscourt Waterfall, the highest in Ireland. Walking at a leisurely pace, we can soak in the peaceful atmosphere of the woods, enjoy the beautiful views and the deep silence sometimes broken by bird song.
Lying at the heart of Djouce Woods, the Ponds were a popular destination for Powerscourt guests and pick nicks were organised on their shores. The ponds were created by damning the stream but there is far less water since the damn was damaged in a storm. We can still enjoy their charm and the tranquillity of the valley with shy deer coming down to the shore to drink.
