The weekly guided walk of the new Wicklow Town Heritage Trail continues this Saturday, and will be a key attraction for tourists visiting the town for the Round Ireland Weekend and will provide a great insight into the rich heritage of the town.
Locals, Visitors and Tourists are all welcome to take part in what is a very informative trail detailing the rich history of Wicklow Town.
This walk will commence from Fitzwilliam Square at 11am and will take approximately 2 hours to complete, allowing participants to spend some time at each location.
The walk this week will focus mainly on the Heritage around the Town centre including:
- The construction of St. Patrick’s church, which commenced in 1839.
- The story of the Franciscan Abbey, which dates back to the 12th Century.
- Robert Halpin’s achievement in laying the first Trans-Atlantic cable.
On each storyboard, there is a QR code which enables participants to watch a video on their phone, telling them the story of each key location. The actors featured on the videos are members of the local dramatic society.
