The aim of this website is to showcase the incredible heritage of County Wicklow - the Garden of Ireland, and to provide the best accurate travel information for visitors and residents aiming to explore natural and cultural heritage sites. As this is a long-term project this website will be continually updated. Our objective is not just to provide information on fixed sites, but to provide accurate details on the best places to see wild animals and plants.
Before planning your trip to specific areas please read the "How to get there" description at the bottom of the page, as Wicklow is not serviced by a central transport system. However, it is very close to Dublin and very easy to get to.
To plan your itinerary or a simple daytrip click sites on the map for a good description of the most important sites and areas.
