Newtownmountkennedy is a small village in County Wicklow. It developed within the historic townland of Ballygarny, although all that remains of the village is an old church and graveyard just 0.45 km outside the town. The village with the longest name in Ireland has been a popular tourist destination for the last century. A picturesque village set in woodlands and glens including Glen O’Downs, Altidore, Callowhill and Kilmurry. Explore the adjoining villages of Kilpedder and Kilquade whilst sampling a pint of Guinness in the local pubs in the surrounding countryside. There is a choice of villages close by such as the seaside villages of Kilcoole (3km) and the harbour village of Greystones (9km).
