DISCOVER ARKLOW

Arklow is a lively town in the southern corner of county Wicklow.  Arklow  was, in its day, one of the busiest ports in Ireland and a renowned centre for boat building and sea fishing as well as having a fine tradition in the pottery industry.

Situated on the River Avoca, the N11 road and the Dublin/Rosslare rail line, Arklow is an excellent base for exploring County Wicklow and neighbouring counties. The town is a good base from which to explore the Vale of Avoca to the east and the glorious sandy beaches of Brittas Bay to the north.

The beautiful Clogga Beach is situated about 6.5km by road south of Arklow Town. Arklow has an attractive main street with ornate lighting and a charming riverside walk. The fishing village character is still evident in an area called ”The Fisheries” and the port still boasts a sizeable fleet of fishing boats.

The imposing St Saviours’ Church, impressively floodlit at night, dominates the high ground of the town.
