Visit Wicklow, The Garden Of Ireland
Wicklow is commonly referred to as “The Garden of Ireland”. It is a beautiful county and contains The Wicklow Mountains and National Park. At different times of the year, it looks very different. When you go in late summer it is covered in beautiful purple heather. When the heather dies back it is a misty, brown peatland. Tour Wicklow with Ireland At Your Leisure.
