Welcome to Eastern Wicklow
The coastal towns and rolling valleys of eastern Wicklow play second fiddle to the mountains in terms of dramatic scenery, but its largely unassuming villages and seaside resorts have a subtle charm. Highlights include the upmarket seaside town of Greystones, the historic jail in Wicklow town and the beautiful Vale of Avoca.
A string of beaches – Silver Strand, Brittas Bay and Maheramore – starts 16km south of Wicklow town. With high dunes, safe bathing and powdery sand, the beaches attract droves of Dubliners in good weather.
