Picture rolling hills, picturesque glens, shimmering lakes, tumbling waterfalls and beautiful beaches - all courtesy of Mother Nature and all close to your County Wicklow cottage. Little wonder this wonderful area is affectionately known as the 'Garden of Ireland'.
Such splendid natural beauty attracts award-winning film directors and you can follow stars of the screen along blockbuster drives like Braveheart and Michael Collins. Or take the drive along Sally Gap, a mountain pass promising incredible views.
But the best way to soak up the surroundings is to follow the advice of the official tourist board and that's to 'jump into' Wicklow and enjoy the superb range of outdoor activities. Hill walk along the Wicklow Way in the Wicklow Mountains National Park, horse ride from one of the many superb schools, play golf on championship greens such as Druid's Glen ('Augusta of Europe') - everything's here. Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages in County Wicklow.
