Wicklow Mountains

Wicklow Mountains

Covering most of County Wicklow, the magnificent Wicklow Mountains National Park is one of Ireland’s scenic jewels. Combining stunning mountains, rolling hills and tranquil lakes, this area is often called ‘the Garden of Ireland’. The mountainous landscape is home to rare flowers and beautiful birds of prey, with gushing streams and untamed vistas at every turn. 



Enjoy the delights of Kilkenny, Ireland’s best-preserved medieval city. Tasteful shops and restaurants are integrated in time-hallowed streets and a tangible sense of olde-Ireland is maintained here. Discover the famous Medieval Mile, which captures 800 years of history with its award-winning museum, impressive castle, delightful Rothe Gardens and St Canice’s round tower, one of three climbable towers in Ireland. History and cosmopolitanism are uniquely blended in Kilkenny, with the tourist office housed in a Tudor building dating back to 1582, and the Famine Memorial located within the grounds of the MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre.
