The Murrough is a place of growing commercial use, so much so that a road by-passing the town directly to the commercial part of the area commenced construction in 2008 and was completed in summer of 2010. To the immediate north lies 'The Murrough', a popular grassy walking area beside the sea, and the eastern coastal strip. Wicklow town forms a rough semicircle around Wicklow harbour. The eastern coastal strip includes Wicklow bay, a crescent shaped stone beach approximately 10km in length.

Oak Hill Cricket Club is located 7.5 km south of Wicklow. The club plays its home matches at Oak Hill Cricket Club Ground, which was constructed in 2008.[21] The ground has hosted first-class cricket matches for Ireland and Leinster Lightning.

Although its anglicised spelling Kilmantan[12] was used for a time, it gradually fell out of use. Saint Patrick and some followers are said to have tried to land on Travailahawk beach, to the south of the harbour. Manntach (toothless one), as he became known, was undeterred and returned to the town, eventually founding a church.[11] Hence Cill Mhantin, meaning "church of the toothless one". Hostile locals attacked them, causing one of Patrick's party to lose his front teeth. The origin of the Irish name Cill Mhantin bears no relation to the name Wicklow. It has an interesting folklore of its own.

Brendan Lawrence 'Lads, I'm standing up here for this man, Peter Coney, this one's for you brother,' said Kiltegan captain Eoin Coogan as he held aloft the number four jersey worn by his late colleague and dear friend Peter Coney who would have been the happiest man in Aughrim last Saturday had we not all been robbed of his wonderful presence...

Though the surrounding County of Wicklow is rich in bronze age monuments, the oldest surviving settlement in the town is the ruined Franciscan friary. Wicklow Gaol was a place of execution up to the end of the 19th century and it was here that Billy Byrne, a leader of the 1798 rebellion, met his end in 1799. This is located at the west end of Main Street, within the gardens of the local Roman Catholic parish grounds. The North Groyne was completed by about 1909 John Pansing was the designer and Louis Nott of Bristol the builder. The architect was William George Strype and the builder was John Jackson of Westminster. Other notable buildings include the Town Hall and the Gaol, built in 1702 and recently renovated as a heritage centre and tourist attraction. The East Breakwater, arguably the most important building in the town, was built in the early 1880s by Wicklow Harbour Commissioners. He is commemorated by a statue in the town square.

Furthermore, this word is almost never combined with a male name or a general word meaning "a category of person". He notices that -lo was never used outside Norway (cf. Moreover, "Viking" never appears in toponymic records. Oslo) and Scandinavia. The Swedish toponymist Magne Oftedal[7] criticises the usual explanation that the name comes from Old Norse Vikingr (meaning "Viking") and Old Norse l (meaning "meadow"), that is to say "the Vikings' meadow" or "Viking's meadow". For him, the first element can be explained as Uikar- or Uik- "bay" in Old Norse and the intermediate N of the old forms is a mistake by the clerks.
