Explore County Wicklow Beaches and Coastline

County Wicklow is known as the "Garden of Ireland". The coast is nearly 60km long and Wicklow Head and sea cliffs form the eastern most point of Ireland.

The coast differs as you travel with the North starting at the rocky Bray Head and then you hit the long stretch of shingle beach near Wicklow itself. If you then continue you will see smaller shingle and sandy beaches.
