Information about County Wicklow

County Wicklow is known as the Garden of Ireland  and is in the Republic of Ireland with the county seat at Wicklow. Bordered in the north by County Dublin, in the east by the Irish Sea, in the south by County Wexford and in the west by the Counties of Carlow and Kildare. The dominant feature of the terrain is the Wicklow Mountains and their foothills: the highest peak is Lugnaquillia 926 m. The Liffey and Slaney Rivers rise within the county.

The unspoiled countryside of Wicklow has several world-class golf courses, the most famous is Druids Glen Golf & Country Club - host to the Irish Open Championship from 1996-1999. The rivers and lakes in County Wicklow provide excellent coarse fishing and game angling. Sea angling is available off the coast.

Wicklow has copper mines and a hydroelectric plant has been constructed in the area. Its proximity to Dublin makes the region a popular one with tourists. Glendalough has notable ecclesiastical remains. The people of the mountainous district were long able to maintain their independence of English control, hence Wicklow was not organized as a county until 1606. The interesting ruins and many deep glens of the county, especially at Glendalough, are noted for their beauty. There is an abundance of formal gardens and restored Stately homes with the magnificent Powerscourt House and Gardens renowned for its Italian-style ornamental gardens and waterfall.

Wicklow is derived from its Viking name of Vykinglo - the original settlements were founded in the 8th century by the Vikings. The county has had a colourful history. St Kevin established a monastic site at Glendalough in the highlands in the 6th century.

The Avoca hand-weavers still produce wonderful woollens and tweeds from the Old Avoca Mill dates back to 1723. It is the oldest working mill in Ireland.
