The famous Wicklow Gaol (Jail) is only a short stroll away and Brittas Bay Blue Flag Beach is only a short drive away. Visit the Historic Gaol where actors play the part of jailer and matron to get a feel for life from the 18th century on to more recent times. There are lots of lovely cafes and restaurants in the town and at night you can enjoy great Irish traditional or ballad music sessions.
There are many activities in the area from horse riding to kayaking, angling, sea tours, golf and hiking. The owners of Riverlodge B&B are walkers and are delighted to share information on walking with guests. Drying facilities for outdoor wear such as wet suits, hiking boots, clothes and biking gear are available.
The harbour town of Wicklow (a Viking name- Vyking-lo meaning sweet meadow) has a long and interesting history. Local historians tell us that there were people living here 2,500 years ago. A short wander through the town and the harbour area will tell you why. Wicklow is now a typical Irish country and seaside town, attracting friend and foe. Take a walk to the lighthouse pier and to the ruins of the old Norman Keep that we call the Black Castle where you will see the fantastic vantage point the holders of this headland had over the bay to the north and the seas to the south.
You could make a tour of Wicklow. It is famous for its beauty and is often called the Hollywood of Europe. Many movies have been made in the area - P.S. I Love You, Braveheart, Excalibur, Asterix, The Tudors and many more.
If gardens are your thing, Wicklow is known as the Garden of Ireland and there are an abundance of show gardens. The landscaped gardens of Mount Usher in Ashford and the Meadow Gardens of Kilmacurragh are located nearby.
The owners are local to the area and are happy to share their knowledge to make your stay more enjoyable.
