Things to do: parks, sightseeing
Ashford, historically known as Ballymacahara, is a village in County Wicklow, Ireland. It lies on the River Vartry and at the meeting of the R772, R763 and R764 regional roads. The village was formerly on the main Dublin–Wexford route, the N11, but was bypassed by the new N11 in 2004.Ashford is about 3km north of Rathnew, which is on the outskirts of the town of Wicklow.The Mount Usher Gardens and Arboretum are located in the village. The gardens were previously owned and operated by Madelaine Jay and the Jay family, but recently the gardens and shopping courtyard were leased to the Avoca Handweavers company, which originated in Avoca, County Wicklow, and which has been owned and operated by the Pratt family for many generations.In recent years the village has seen rapid growth as it becomes part of the Dublin commuter belt.Ashford is served by Bus Éireann route 133, linking it with Wicklow and Dublin. This route now comes from Dublin Airport - while routes 002 and 006 link it with Rosslare Harbour and Waterford respectively.
