About County Wicklow
County Wicklow is on the eastern edge of Ireland and part of the province of Leinster. Its name, Wicklow, is derived from the Old Norse name Víkingalág or Wykynlo. The Wicklow Mountains are the
largest continuous upland region in Ireland with Lugnaquilla, the highest peak, rising to 925 metres, the second highest after Kerry.
The Wicklow Way,which passes in front of Wicklow Way Lodge is the oldest waymarked long distance walking trail in Ireland, and a popular attraction in a region offering many recreational
activites including fishing, rafting and hillwalking, amongst others.
In its midst lies the monastic settlement of Glendalough, believed founded by St. Kevin, and a popular tourist attraction; as well as Powerscourt Waterfall, the highest waterfall in Ireland.
The many rivers in Wicklow include the Avoca, the Liffey and the River Vartry which flows through the Devil’s Glen to its mouth north of Wicklow town. The confluence of the rivers Avonmore and Avonbeg is locally known as “the meeting of the waters”; the combined entity, now known as the River Avoca, collects the waters of the River Aughrim before discharging into the Irish Sea at Arklow. The River Slaney is in the western part of the county, bordering County Carlow.
The many lakes are small but numerous, located mainly in mountain valleys or glacial corries. They include Loughs Dan, Tay, Brae, the lakes of Glendalough as well as Poulaphouca reservoir (the largest by volume).
