A seaside resort town with a long tradition in seafaring and related activities - boat building, sea fishing and lifeboat station. Arklow has also a fine tradition in the pottery industry. Situated on the river Avoca, the N11 road and the Dublin/Rosslare rail line and with a good range of accommodation available, Arklow is an excellent base for exploring County Wicklow and neighbouring counties. It has an attractive main street with ornate lighting and a charming riverside walk. The imposing Saint Saviour's Church impressively floodlit at night, dominates the high ground of the town. Visitor attractions are the tours of Arklow and Wicklow Vale Potteries, the Maritime Museum and the Sport and Leisure Centre.
