Wicklow Town Heritage Trail
Wicklow Town, Co. Wicklow
8 April - 30 September 2023
Family friendly
Free to visit
Take a walk through Wicklow Town's Past. Wicklow Town Heritage Trail covers the town’s history from the arrival of St. Patrick and his monks at Travelahawk beach in 432 until the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922.

The past 1500 years has seen the development of Wicklow from a tiny settlement in Christian times to the unique and historical town we have today – with its picturesque 19th Century Harbour.

Today, Wicklow Town welcomes all visitors with a promise that you will enjoy spending a number of hours rambling through their narrow streets, observing their historic sites and appreciating the beauty of the coastline.

A FREE GUIDED TRAIL takes place every Saturday morning from Easter Saturday until the end of September. Free to all – no booking required. The Guided Trail will commence from outside the Failte Ireland Office, Fitzwilliam Square at 11:00 and will take approximately 1.5 – 2 hours.
