Wicklow Uplands

Since its inception, Wicklow Uplands Council has initiated and participated in projects and partnerships which bring value to the people, who live, work and recreate in the Wicklow Uplands


There are a diverse range of important habitats within the Wicklow Uplands: blanket bog, heath and upland grasslands.

Flora and Fauna

Deer are very common in the uplands and Wicklow has one of the highest deer populations in the country.


The earliest settlers arrive in Ireland about 9,000 years ago. These people were hunters, gathers and fishers.
