Wicklow, in Ireland, is famous for its natural surroundings and dramatic landscapes where mountains melt into the sea. Located only 30 minutes drive from Dublin it is a convenient and charming getaway spot. At the seaside town of Brayhead, you can visit the Bray Heritage Center and Tourist Office which documents the county’s history from the 12th century onwards. Kilruddery House and Gardens have some of Ireland’s oldest gardens that surround a beautiful Elizabethan-revival mansion. At the spectacular Wicklow Mountains National Park there are several tourist attractions both natural and manmade including the twin lakes, woodland trails and ancient monasteries and stone works. For some quality fishing and boating experiences head to Wicklow Town, located 20 minutes south of Bray. The town boasts a shimmering harbor and a large shingle beach as well as the Wicklow Gaol, where you can see the squalid living conditions of the prisons of the past. Greystones Town overlooks the Irish Sea and is famous for its tree-lined streets and old style homes.
