Macreddin Village, Co. Wicklow

 This unique and picturesque Village is steeped in history. Named after a 4th century chief called Credin, Macreddin in bygone days was a booming area with regular fair days, which were not only important for business but also were a highlight of the local social calendar before slowly slipping into decline in the late nineteenth century. Now once again this unique and picturesque village thrives with the opening of the Brooklodge Hotel and the establishment of an equestrian centre and craft shops. There is also a regular farmers market held here.

Across the village green from BrookLodge Hotel is a wonderful old stone bridge over Ballycreen Brook and above the village in the 17th century graveyard you can admire the work of the famous sculptor Dennis Cullen of Monaseed on the headstones.

With fantastic views of Cushbawn Hill the area is a popular walking trail which boasts amazing views of the surrounding countryside from the summit. There is a golf course under construction at present and there is the equestrian centre for horse riding. There is also fishing nearby.
