“Profound....”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Victor Langheld is an aesthetic,a philosopher and a dreamer/writer.Some may call him eccentric.His philosophy is practical and grounded.He has stayed in India for 30 years and has got most of the sculptures made in Mahabalipuram in Southern India and has taken pains to get them shipped to Ireland(his conviction is motivating).

We were taken to the park by our local hosts who though it would be of interest to us given the background of Indian philosophy/deities.It certainly was.The Ganesh sculptures are quirky and interesting.

Open 12.30-1800 hrs each day till 22nd Sept.Entry donation is 2.50 Euros.Takes about an hour to walk through all the entire estate .There are books and handicrafts on sale.

Go if you are interested in serious philosophy or if you are a picnicker(lovely lawns).

(was glad to have met Victor and discuss life with him)

“Insightful walk”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

A great way to spend a few hours rambling around on a Sunday afternoon walk. Pack a picnic.
All payments are on a trust basis which is very inspiring in modern times. Good value for money.

“Hidden Treasure! Well worth the visit.”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Was so impressed with this place. The owner is so friendly and it's only 2.50 euro entry per adult. It is quite a surprise to find this place in the middle if Wicklow. The statues are really interesting and there are loads of areas to sit and have a picnic. Would recommend a visit.

“Magical”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Magical is the word that best describes Victoria's Way in Roundwood, Co Wicklow. It is a must-see, must-feel experience. It is impossible not to visit this magical place without it leaving a permanent footprint on your heart and mind. Highly recommended.
