Wicklow is the county town of County Wicklow and the capital of the Mid-East Region in Ireland. Escape the urban bustle at The Wicklow Way and Brittas Bay. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Russborough House and The Mill at Avoca Village. There's still lots to do: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, explore the activities along Glendalough Upper Lake, tee off at Wicklow Golf Club, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Tonelagee.
