The site on which Wicklow Town now stands has been a settlement for thousands of years because of its ideal location and the abundance of food both in the sea and on land. Wicklow’s Heritage Trail covers our town’s history from
the arrival of St. Patrick and his monks at Travelhawk beach in 432 up to the end of the Civil War and the establishment
of the Irish Free State in 1922.
