County Wicklow

Our cottages situated in this county, just below Dublin, are located to make the most of the beautiful scenery on offer.

The county Wicklow, just south of Dublin, has a great variety of scenery within its borders.  It is known as the 'Garden of Ireland'. In the east the coastal area is low and sandy, except in a few places where it crops out in headlands; two of the country's main resorts, Arklow and Bray, are along this coast. Central Wicklow is a mass of domed granite mountains, penetrated by deep glens and wooded valleys; it contains some of the finest scenery in Ireland. To the west, the mountains give way to gentler country on the edge of the central plain.

The county is blessed with beautiful scenery, a spectacular coastline and some of Ireland's best-preserved early Christian remains. For a great day out, visit the ancient monastic settlement at Glendalough or brave the heights of Lugnaquilla - Wicklow' s highest peak.

The Wicklow Mountains with their deep and mysterious glens and valleys, give rise to some of the most spectacular scenery in the east of Ireland.  The Military Road, which runs through the mountains from Rathfarnham in the south Country Dublin to Aghavannagh in the very south of Wicklow, is perhaps the best route to take through the mountains.
