We spent a good few hours walking the trails around Devils Glen. The sculptures are quite nice, indigenous and non-indigenous woods. The falls at the end were in full flow when we visited. The down-side was the amount of litter present, no bins provided and people are obviously too lazy to take their rubbish home with them. Also, disgustingly is... More

The driveway from the road to the car park is quite long, but eventually we got to a very well prepared and maintained car park with surrounding picnic tables and area. Several walking routes are available, the most popular of which is probably the one to the waterfall. Very enjoyable.

This a magical experience. and well worth giving a few hours to peruse, contemplate and enjoy. The woodland setting really enhances the art work, and it is a place that lifts one's spirit and imagination.

I like walking here as it has spectacular cliff side walks and a walk into the base of the Devils Glen gorge. The sculptures are fine but the walk and the lovely waterfall at the head of the valley are the real heroes. I would leave around two hours of gentle paced walking. Its a lovely spot. A word of...

We were fortunate to stop at the Devils Glen on our way back from Wicklow. The weather was misty and warm and contributed to the feeling of wilderness as we climbed from the parking lot at the end of the drive to the roaring river with its many waterfalls, tangled trees and occasional tree tunnel. We read about the sculptures... More

The sculptures are there maybe 10 years now. Many have disappeared, many are falling to pieces, but it still makes for a nice walk in the woods.

The Devils Glen is a forest park area owned and managed by Coillte www.coillte.ie which is the national forest company. There is a walk with various sculptures with other works of 'art' depending on your point of view. But the main point of this area is the lovely walks set out in mostly natural woodland - a rare treat in... More

Nice woodland walks, but many sculptures over growen and run down. Only real acess seems to be by car and parking is limited. The sculpture park was developed in 1994 and I don't think anything has been done to it since. Some of the sculptures are overgrown and falling apart. Having said that there are still a few lovely sculptures... More

Isolated and unsecured car park, lack of security in the area. No amenities, toilets etc.No lighting. Need a car as there is no public transport at all to this site. Nice mature woodland and pleasant river setting
