The small stone humpback bridge is a popular place for tourists to stop and view the County Wicklow scenery. There is a trout fishery in the village with a 4-acre (16,000 m2) lake where one can fly or bait fish. A separate fishing pond for children allows them to catch brown and rainbow trout.

Annamoe is a breeding stonghold of the great spotted woodpecker, Ireland's newest species.
