The Wicklow Region
Situated just south of Dublin, County Wicklow is dominated by a great mass of domed granite mountains, penetrated by deep glens and wooded valleys. The most beautiful parts of Wicklow can be found within a broad north-south swade running down the centre of the mountains. The county's rolling granite hills are also the source of Dublin's River Liffey. Located among these hills and mountains are places such as Glencree, Glenmalure, Glenmacnass and the magnificent Glen of Imaal.
Given this terrain and the proximity to Dublin, Wicklow in its day lent itself well to the shelter of bandits. Indeed, it was here that the last insurgents of the land agitation that spread all over Ireland following the French invasion of County Mayo in 1798, hid out. Using remote valleys such as Glenmalure and the Glen of Imaal as safe havens, powerful families would move in to attack the English. During this period, the mountains were practically impassable until the ensuing uprisings. The army built a road allowing them to patrol effectively after this, which now conveniently takes us through some of Wicklow's finest scenery.
Wicklow's mountains were molded and shaped during the Ice Age, resulting in the smooth peaks that we see today. It was this ice that was responsible for creating the deep valleys of Glenmacnass, Glenmalure and Glendalough. A vast mound of granite, the mountains are comprised of a hot igneous rock that consolidated some 400 million years ago. Baking the overlying clays and sedimentary rock, the heat produced shiny mica shists, evident across the county.
One of Wicklow's most famous landmarks, the monastic site at Glendalough attracts visitors from all over the world. The monastery was founded in the sixth century by Saint Kevin and now hosts a well preserved round tower, a number of fine stone churches and various crosses. The Visitor Centre houses an exhibition, an audio-visual show entitled 'Ireland of the Monasteries' and regular guided tours of the monastic site.
Barraniskey is a quiet rural location close to Blue Flag beach Brittas Bay. Local amenities are best found in nearby Avoca, Woodbridge or Arklow.
Avoca was home to the BBC series Ballykissangel.
South of Rathdrum, the Avonmore and Avonbeg Rivers join to form the Avoca River, about 3 miles north of Avoca village; this is the famous Meeting of the Waters. Overlooking the scene is Castle Howard, situated on a cliff by the river's eastern bank. Nearby is Tom Moore's tree, where the poet is said to have spent long hours in contemplation. Now it is a stark skeleton, railed off to save it from souvenir-hunters. The Vale of Avoca is especially lovely in late spring, when drifts of white blossom from the wild cherry trees are in stark contrast to the green foliage. On either side of the valley, the ground rises in little hills, culminating on the western side in a background of mountains. Valuable deposits of pyrites lie in the valley They contain ores of copper, lead, zinc and sulphur (no longer mined). In Avoca village a weaving centre is open to the public; its products are internationally renowned.
Arklow is one of the main seaside resorts on the east coast and is beautifully situated at the mouth of the River Avoca, in the extreme south of the county. Fishing and shipping are traditional here. The yacht that Sir Francis Chichester brought around the world - Gipsy Moth III - was built in Arklow shipyard. The town's famous pottery products are exported worldwide.
2.5 miles from the N11, Arklow exit.
