Co. Wicklow on Ireland’s southeast coast may not be along the Wild Atlantic Way but it’s a sure reminder of why you shouldn’t forget the rest of the country to explore the west coast. Known as the Garden County, from its mountains to its beautiful beaches, Wicklow is a magical place to visit and is just a short train or car journey from the capital city Dublin.
With outstanding natural beauty, from the world renowned Mount Usher to Powerscourt Gardens - voted third best garden in the world by National Geographic - Wicklow easily earns its nickname, with its temperate climate providing an unrivalled variety of trees, plants, and shrubs throughout the county’s various planted gardens while the natural landscape provides a garden of its own.
This garden of Ireland was beautifully captured recently in drone footage from Skycam who took footage from across the county and compiled it into this utterly majestic collection of clips from the glens, pinnacles and sandy shores of one of the best tourist spots in the country.
Opening with an incredible shot of an endless abundance of green standing on either side of a peaceful river, the video moves from the snowy peaks of the Wicklow Mountains to sweep across the waterfalls and lazy fields towards the incoming tide of the Irish Sea.
Also showing off some of the county's beautiful historic building from castles to round towers, if this doesn’t make you want to book flights to Wicklow instantly we don’t know what will.
