Nestled in the southern corner of County Wicklow, Arklow was once one of the busiest ports in Ireland with thriving boat building and sea fishing industries. It still retains its fishing village character and indeed still has a sizeable fishing fleet. Today Arklow boasts a lovely marina with plentiful berths, excellent facilities and a wide range of marine services. The Harbour also runs sea tours along the coast and a summer scuba diving school. Every August bank holiday the harbour comes into its own as Arklow celebrates its maritime festival

The picturesque main street with colourful shop fronts, and ornate lighting is a bustling hub of local activity. Centre stage is taken by the eighteenth-century bridge known as the nineteen arches and is one of the longest stone bridges in Europe. There is a good choice of places to eat and a friendly vibrant pub scene.

Many visitors come to the town for the beautiful North and South beaches and nearby Glogga beach. There is also a superb golf course and excellent sports facilities. Walkering enthusiasts are spoilt for choice both within the town itself and the magnificent surrounding countryside. Amongst the many attractions close to Arklow are Avoca (or Ballykissangle), the famous ‘Meeting of the Waters’, Brittas Bay and Gledalough National Park.

A true family favourite, Arklow is a magical place with plenty going for it. From the wonderful coastline to the beautiful countryside, magnificent buildings to warm hospitality, you really couldn’t ask for more from a relaxing holiday by the sea.
