Where I stayed
Glen na Smole B&B, Wicklow, Co. Wicklow, Ireland

There were two pubs that I noticed in Wicklow, Phil Healeys and The Old Forge.  Phil's was the only one I had time to visit, but both were popular with the locals.  Phil's is an indoor pub and The Old Forge had a large patio.  Two employees of Phil's (Phil maybe one of them) stood outside the door and greeted me with a compliment as I entered.

Glen na Smole is a nice, quiet b&b above town and within walking distance of the bus stop.  Some bus drivers will be happy to let you off at the crossroad, but I enjoyed the walk to and from town.  Glen na Smole's owner, Fiona, offered several things for breakfast, including a traditional Irish breakfast.  Fiona is a great cook and very friendly.

On my last morning in Wicklow, Fiona took me on a quick tour of Wicklow to spare me from the weight of my 25 pound pack and to show me the seaside and castle ruins.  Go raibh maith agat Fiona! :)

Afterwards, I stopped by the local sports shop for hurleys and a sliothar (spelling?).  Seeing the size of my pack and learning of my next destination, they agreed to mail them home for me.  I wish the USD had a better value, because in Euros, the price was right.

Then it was onto Dublin again.
