My wife and I plan to stay in Ireland for an extended period of time. We are looking at Co. Wicklow. Does anyone know of a good coastal town to live in the county?
I'm house-minding in this area in August...
Be interested to hear about the area and see any photos....?
I like to hike and run....and hang out in the countryside...
So stuff pertaining to that would be great.

I have a quick question. Why do the farmer's separate the fields with stone walls? Is there some reason for it or is it just another form of fencing?
Hello, my soon-to-be husband & I are staying in Rathdrum for about 6 days in June and I haven't done much research because it is our honeymoon and I'm otherwise preoccupied with wedding plans. Are there any suggestions on things we should see, pubs with good food/music? Also any other suggestions outside of the area that are good for day trips (we are staying in Dublin for 5 days following our stay in Rathdrum). Thank you!
I was needing to find out how much time the train takes from Bray to Dalkey and if we walked up the coastal road how long that would take? Isn't it only a 7 mile distance and is there a stop in Dalkey between Bray and Dublin train route?Thanks in advance.
I will be staying with family in Baltinglass. I want to know are there any car hire firms in Baltinglass. If so, is there a contact number to ring. I am travelling from Australia.
Hello, I will be traveling in Ireland for the first time this March and wondering if it would be easy/difficult/worthwhile to visit Powerscourt house and gardens and Glendalough in the same day? It seems that Powerscourt estate might offer enough to do in one day, but I heard that Glendalough is very picturesque being near the Wicklow mountains. If this is possible what would be the best means of travel?
Thanks so much for any advice or suggestions!
My family history includes ancestors described as being from "Vale of Avoca" and I have records of some being baptized in Arklow (although I have no parish names). What are the best resources for viewing parish records, as I've read that the parish priests are very covetous of those records and that libraries in Dublin are the best place to look.
Also, what about visiting cemeteries for headstones? Are they well maintained to the point that markings are visible? We are planning a vacation to the Avoca/Arklow region later this year and I'd like to visit the places of our ancestral home.
I'm planning to take my teenage daughters on a holiday in August. We want to visit Dublin but probably not stay there. I'm thinking that County Wicklow would be nice, perhaps somewhere on the Dart rail line.
I'd like a town that would be a good base from where to explore the area. That means good rail/bus links because we wont be driving. We're looking to visit some nice costal and countyrside spots, plus castles, country house gardens etc.
I'd be very grateful for any suggestions or advice.
Hello there im visiting some friends who have finally persuaded us to visit them in Avoca, trouble is ,we are leaving at short notice and so I really havent figured out on much to do.
Any must do suggestions?
any famous historical must see's?
Any good eateries, or places for speciality food?
we would love to hear.
Apologies for this being not a travel-related question as such, but I couldn't think of a better place to ask. I am thinking of taking a job in Bray, Co. Wicklow.
Is Bray an expensive place to rent a flat? How about the crime rate? Any other places I could consider living within a reasonable commute (30 mins max) of Bray? How about Dun Laoghaire ? South Dublin ?
Also, what about public transport into/around Dublin ?
Thanks in advance
I look for address: 35 Aravon Court, Meath Road, Bray, Co. Wiclow. I can,t find any map of this area, and if you could send me map( if there is one) by email I would be very grateful.
