Kilcoole is a small village which has grown a lot in recent years. Here, the coastline is only accessible by foot from a cul de sac which runs to the railway line. The beach is of shingle and stone, and birdwatchers will greatly appreciate the mud flats. They are part of the nature reserve which runs most of the way to Wicklow town. The beach at Kilcoole is excellent for shore angling. The nearby ruins of a church date from the 12th century, and there are some interesting gravestones dating from the18th century. Perhaps Kilcoole's biggest claim to fame is the fact that Ireland's top TV soap opera is filmed here in the village - "Glenroe".
