Enter into the glorious garden of Ireland
Nestled amongst the lush rolling hills of Wicklow are pretty little glens, cascading waterfalls and glassy lakes – it’s for good reason that this county is known as the “garden of Ireland”.
Wicklow shimmers countless shades of green and its spectacular landscape provides the perfect backdrop for a whole host of activities including horse riding, golf and hillwalking.
Aside from its awesome scenery, intimate villages and pristine stretches of beach, Wicklow is a wonderfully historic spot with elegant county houses and gardens and a delightful 6th-Century monastic site.
