All On Our Doorstep

Meeting of the Waters

At the meeting of the Waters, 3 km North of Avoca, the Avonmore and Avonbeg rivers come together to form the Avoca river. It was here that, on a rustic seat formad by the root of a tree, the famous peot Thomas Moore penned his famour Irish Melody "The Meetings of the Water".


Visit this traditional mining village with the remnants of old chimney stacks and engine houses scattered around. Copper and Sulphur were mined here since the Bronze Age. By the 1980s all mining activity ceased.

Wicklow's Historic Gaol

A £2 million restoration and interpretive plan has been carried out by Wicklow County Council to develop the old county Gaol which is situated at the southern end of Wicklow Town, beside the Courthouse (where many of the inmates were tried and sentenced), and adjacent to Market Square.

There has been a gaol on this site since 1702 and it remained active until 1924. During this time thousands of prisoners, young and old, men, women and children, guilty and innocent passed through its doors. The story of Wicklow's Historic Gaol is their story. 

Powerscourt Gardens

One of the World's Great Gardens. Powerscourt is situated in the village of Enniskerry 40km north of Rathdrum in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains. It is a sublime blend of formal gardens, sweeping terraces, statuary and ornamental lakes together with secret hollows, rambling walks and over 200 varieties of trees and shrubs. 
The 18th Century Palladian House now incorporates an innovative shopping experience, terrace cafe and house exhibition. Facilities include speciality shops, interiors gallery, garden pavilion and 18-hole golf course.

Located about 10km north of Rathdrum, Glendalough, the valley of the two lakes, is one of Ireland's most notable locations for scenic, historical and archaelogical reasons. Approaching from the east or descending upon it through the Wicklow Gap from the west, it is shrouded in beauty, mystery and tranquility.
