Wicklow Map and Tourist Information
Wicklow Town is built on a great promontory overlooking the sea, the town enjoys one of the most attractive settings of any Irish town and has easy access to the surrounding County, the Garden of Ireland.The name of the town comes from the days of the Vikings who established a seaport here in a sheltered bay beneath Wicklow Head. They called it Wykinglo, 'translating the bay of the ships'.Older traditions tell of the foundation of a church by an otherwise unknown disciple of St. Patrick called Mantan.The Town is a centre for fishing, sailing & walking and you can visit the Wicklow Gaol Museum, the 12th Century Black Castle ruins and Wicklow Head.
