Wicklow Axe Throwing and Viking Fire

Located in a Secret Woodland near Troopers Town Car Park, Laragh, Wicklow.. Just 1 hour south of Dublin.. SEE MAP HERE

We throw a range or different axes that are not possible to throw in our Dublin location, and in a beautiful woodland next to the Avonmore river. Chats happen around the fire and where we can really connect with each other as you slow down and enjoy being out in nature.

  • Throw different axes and be in nature
  • Discover your inner viking
  • Learn how to light a fire with flint and steel.
  • Eat around the campfire
  • Extend your event to an all day event or even overnight (cheaper than a Dublin hotel and you get to throw axes)
