Directly South of Dublin and on the Irish Sea, Wicklow is Ireland’s premier outdoor destination: walk, run or cycle the Wicklow mountains. Ride through stunning landscape. Surf or paddle the Irish Sea, or our many rivers and lakes. Play on some of Ireland’s best links and parkland golf courses.
From Mountains to Sea, Wicklow’s landscape is unique: cliffs, sandy beaches, rolling mountains, hidden lakes, bogs, friendly villages, etc. Visit here pre-historic places of worship; follow on the footsteps of St Kevin in Glendalough’s 6th Century monastic site; experience the troubled times of the 1798 Rebellion in Wicklow Jail; admire the grandeur of Russborough or Killruddery houses; wander through Ireland’s most beautiful gardens like Powerscourt or Mount Usher.
Wicklow has the largest national park in Ireland, the biggest forest land, the largest mountain area, the highest waterfall, the biggest man-made lake and the source of Dublin's own River Liffey.
