Roundwood is generally regarded as being one of the highest villages in Ireland, at approximately 230 metres above sea level. Along with Laragh, it serves as the principal gateway to the Wicklow mountains. The village has a range of local retail and community facilities to serve the local population and tourists. The land zoned in the current County Development Plan has potential to accommodate approximately 195 residential units.
