We can’t think of anything better than spending some quality time with the person we love, away from the stresses of ordinary life. Wicklow, often referred to as the Garden of Ireland, is one of Ireland’s most romantic getaway destinations in Ireland, especially for couples who love the great outdoors, or admiring it through the window! Plan a romantic trip to our Wicklow Hotel to experience luxury and comfort surrounded by the beauty of nature. Our packages include self-catering breaks, signature escapes and golfing weekends for two. You might love it enough to consider us for your wedding if we’re lucky!
Get back to nature in one of the most formidable and impressive Irish beauty spots, Glendalough. Home to one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland, this massive parkland is a must for every Wicklow bucket list, not least because of its scenery and the peace you’ll find being so far from the city. Also known as the Valley of the two lakes, there are walkways for all abilities, from people pushing prams and dog walkers, to experienced hikers and climbers; simply choose the route that suits you. Walk hand in hand along the signposted walkway around the lakes, venture onward across the mountains and check out the monastic site to discover more about the area and the people who shaped it. After a day of exploring, pop into the visitor’s centre or stop at the on-site coffee shop for refreshments.
Hike the Wicklow Way
If you’re feeling adventurous, and have a good level of fitness, why not pack a picnic and head out to hike part of the Wicklow Way? At 128km long, the Wicklow Way is Irelands first ever long-distance hiking trail. The entire hike would take around 5 days, but there are sections to undertake so you can enjoy a long day out rather than a camping trip! About half of the trail is on quiet back roads and the rest is forest hikes or walking over hills and mountains. You’ll enjoy unspoiled scenery, rugged forest settings and some truly spectacular panoramic views along the way, creating special memories along the way. Make sure to take plenty of food and water for a romantic picnic stop.
Powerscourt is a large country estate known for its house and landscaped gardens. It’s one of Ireland’s most scenic tourist attractions visited by hundreds of thousands each year. The house was designed around a medieval castle with Palladian architecture and featured baroque dome-roofed towers on either side. It’s a modern wonder of design and style, beloved by many. The gardens are colourful, perfectly manicured and a place to find peace in an otherwise bustling space. They were voted number three in the World’s Top Ten Gardens by National Geographic and stretch over 47 acres of formal gardens, sweeping terraces, secret hollows and lovely walks.
Beyond the Trees Avondale
Picture yourselves spending an afternoon above the trees, enjoying the best scenery in Wicklow together. Beyond the Trees is one of Wicklow’s newest attractions, inviting guests to enjoy a treetop walk with minimal climbing. Begin with a leisurely stroll along the fully accessible 1.4km walkway, winding your way through the trees before emerging on a canopy 38 metres above the forest floor. Surround yourself with the beauty of nature, enjoying 360° views of the forest and admiring local trees like Yew, Larch, Fir, Oak and magnificent Redwood trees. You’ll learn more about local flora and fauna as you ascend, and you might choose to take the adventurous way down on the slide. Create memories that will last a lifetime at Beyond the Trees Avondale
