Delgany, Co. Wicklow

Delgany is a small picturesque village in County Wicklow on the R762 between Greystones and the N11 at the Glen of the Downs. It is about 25 km (16 miles) south of Dublin City centre. The DART surburban rail line terminates in nearby Greystones so the area is well served by public transport.

It is a suburban village separated from the western edge of Greystones by the adjoining village of Killincarrig. Recently, there has been significant housing development in the vicinity mostly aimed at up-market commuters.

Delgany village retains much of its rural character with a general store, a local butcher, a traditional style cafe, interior design shop and several pubs.

The village is surrounded by wooded hills (including Kindlestown Wood) which are popular with walkers. Native wildlife - including badgers, otters, squirrels (red and grey), deer and foxes - survive in the mixed woodland of the Glen of the Downs.

Golfers will be challenged in the two courses nearby -  the established Delgany and the newer Glen of the Downs. Both are hilly courses with views of the Wicklow country side and coastline.

In addition being only 2 km from the Greystones south beach and the sports clubs of Greystones (rugby, GAA, tennis and two more golf courses), Delgany has access to a host amenities.
