Aughrim, Co. Wicklow

Aughrim (Eachroim, or "Horse ridge” in Irish) is a small, attractive village in County Wicklow that lies in a scenic valley where the Ow and Derry rivers meet to form the Aughrim river.

Aughrim has won the tidiest town in County Wicklow award from 1996-2005. There are a number of unusual granite terraced houses throughout the village, constructed - along with a forge, and town hall - at the behest of the Earl of Meath. Aughrim was a granite mining village, and this material is widely used, giving the village a distinctive and coherent architecture.

The tumbling river, which divides the village is a big attraction for fisherfolk. Aughrim makes a good base for a fishing or walking holiday, or simply to explore the area. The Sean Linehan Way provides woodland and riverside walking in the valleys of the Three Wells and Macreddin Brooks, and access to nearby Cushbawn Hill.
