Wicklow is one of Ireland’s most beautiful counties and its most mountainous. Although located just below the historic capital city of Dublin it was the last of the traditional counties of Ireland to be shired by the English rulers in 1606 from land previously part of counties Dublin and Carlow. For this reason it is sometimes called ‘The Last County’. Although a motorway and rail line run along the coastal lowlands central Wicklow is still explored along routes originally built as ‘military roads’ serving a network of barracks built after the 1798 rebellion. It’s a tour worth taking.
