Hidden Valley is a serene haven of relaxation. Set in a beautiful valley with sites overlooking the tranquil waters of the Avonmore River and a glassy, private lake, The park offers guests the opportunity to experience a holiday amid an abundance of wildlife including kingfishers, cranes, wild geese, ducks, otters and pheasant.

Hidden Valley Holiday Park attracts couples and families seeking a peaceful, family-fun holiday in picturesque surroundings. The park offers both hard-standing and grass sites, each with electric, water and grey waste. The park also has a fantastic choice of boutique glamping lodges for those looking for an outdoor getaway with all the views of camping but with all the comforts of home.

The Park was formed in 2005 and is owned and operated by The Williams family. In the first three years of operation, the owners upgraded the holiday park from a 2-star park into a 4-star Failte Ireland approved park offering modern facilities and great value for couples and families alike. As a family owned and operated business we take great pride in assuring our guests a fantastic and memorable holiday.

The park is located in Rathdrum (“Ringfort of the Ridge”), which was originally the main town of Co. Wicklow, and is still well serviced by both train and bus. The town is situated high on the western side of the beautiful Avonmore Valley and offers the tourist scenic views of the Avonmore River, which flows through the Vale of Clara. The Rathdrum railway station opened on July 18th, 1863.

Rathdrum is well known for the Avondale House and Forest Park, which was home to Charles Stewart Parnell – one of the greatest political leaders of modern Irish History. The grounds offer excellent forest/river walks and picnics.

Rathdrum was also well known for the Rathdrum International Cartoon Festival. The Cartoon Inn displays the work of Bill Eirner, Hunt Emereson, Ulrich Schroeder, Bob Foster, which are among some of the famous artists whose work can be seen at close quarter. The Cartoon Inn is famed far and wide for the rich and humour cartoons which adorn its welcoming walls.

Stay at Hidden Valley Review

Maher, Colette - 08/11/2023

3

We stayed during the mid term break for 3 nights. Overall we had a good time and could see the potential of staying there in the Summer months when the weather is better.The camp is really badly lit, some more lighting in the evening is definitely needed.The water balls were dirty and the children were not able to see out of them, it took away from the experience.Some of the spray guns didn't work on all of the boats, that also caused frustration for the children in the boats where they didn't work.Would have liked more indoor activities to be available considering the time of year when outdoors is more difficult.Instructions on how to regulate the temperature of the shower would also be helpful

Hidden valley is the best Holiday home when I got to the staff were so helpful. I'm very please I recommend it.Oh anyone That would love to go.The cadams are so good. Some have showers shut down. The only thing that will have a problem with is that when you book a cabin for two, Prit's still the same. Put that not point all caravans intense. The ground is well looks after and so is all the facilities. To go there again. Best time eventide we go

One night at Hidden Valley

O'Donoghue, Maureen - 04/11/2023

The facilities ans layout at Hidden Valley is good. We paid a late visit to the restaurant, and the staff were very friendly and there was no pressure to leave when the restaurant closed. The river and waterfall is beautiful. My one issue is there's no light in the whole site. We arrived after dark and it was difficult to find an ehu spot. People have to use torch or phone to walk round the site.

Family fun at its best!

Halpin, Ingrid - 03/11/2023

Our boutique lodge was surprisingly spacious and very clean. The outdoor ‘picnic’ area (which is sheltered) is a great addition and perfect given the changeable Irish weather! The food at the Lakehouse was good value for money and very convienient. The kids enjoyed all the facilities on offer which we had booked in advance. Some small changes would be helpful for future visits including 1. Hooks on the back of the bathroom door and a toilet roll holder 2. A blind on the velux window upstairs 3. A proper outside doormat and a second mat inside the lodge door 4. Additional hooks on the back of the storage closet door. We are already looking to book our summer trip to Hidden Valley 😊.
