Wicklow is situated 40 miles (64 kilometers) northeast of Kilkenny and about 25 miles (40 kilometers) south of Dublin, Ireland's capital.
Staying in this popular part of the country is about discovering new things, so why don't you go on a little road trip and visit a couple of the other interesting cities, towns and villages around Wicklow. If you can, leave time to visit Rathdrum, which is approximately 9 miles (14 kilometers) from Wicklow. In Rathdrum, you can visit the Avondale House and Greenan Farm Museum and Maze. Another idea is to travel to Blessington. It's about 13 miles (21 kilometers) from Wicklow and is home to the Russborough House and Sally Gap.
When it's time to spread your wings, check out the nearest regional city. Glendalough is around 3 miles (5 kilometers) away and is home to sights such as Lugnaquilla, St. Kevin's Church and Glendalough Cathedral. Upper Lake, Glendalough Tower and Lough Dan are among the many other attractions that should be included on everyone's itinerary.
If the weather isn't that great, plan a trip to East Coast and Midlands' history museums, art museums and craft workshops. East Coast and Midlands offers travelers some significant churches and other holy sites, ideal places to experience Wicklow's spiritual heart.
If your idea of the perfect break is challenging your abilities in the great outdoors, then check out one of the mountain biking and horse riding trips East Coast and Midlands has to offer. When the weather is fine, enjoy the region's beautiful waterways. Fishing and canoeing are some of the popular ways to get wet here.
East Coast and Midlands should certainly be right at the top of your vacation bucket list.
