Forest Park Info
Zipit is nestled in the fabulous pine forest of Tibradden Wood (known locally as Pine Forest) in the Dublin Mountains.
The Tibradden Wood trail goes from the forest entrance to the summit of Tibradden mountain and continues on to meet the Wicklow Way. Enjoy the panoramic views from the top of Tibradden, overlooking Dublin Bay and Howth. Combine a visit to the Hellfire Club, only a 10 minute drive from Zipit and explore the legends associated with occult activities and brief appearances of the Devil!
Our location is only 15 minutes from Dundrum Town Centre, or a few minutes off the M50. Swing through the trees, enjoying spectacular views of Dublin City and Ireland's Eye. The tall straight pine trees give an illusion of even more height when you are traversing the obstacles.
Larch Hill Scouts campsite is located nearby.
