Aughrim is a small town in County Wicklow, Ireland. It lies in a scenic valley in the east of Ireland where the Ow and Derry rivers meet to form the Aughrim river. Aughrim is on the R747 regional road which runs between Arklow and Baltinglass.
The Rednagh Bridge south of the village was the site of an engagement during the 1798 rebellion between Crown forces and the rebels.
Aughrim has won the Irish Tidy Towns Award for tidiest village in County Wicklow from 1996â2007, and won the Irish Tidy Towns Competition in 2007.
There are a number of unusual granite terraced houses throughout the village, constructed - along with a forge, and town hall - at the behest of the Earl of Meath. Aughrim was a granite mining village, and this material is widely used, giving the village a distinctive and coherent architecture.
A plaque on the bridge commemorates Anne Devlin, who was employed by and supported Robert Emmet, a revolutionary who was hanged in 1803 for his leadership of an aborted uprising.
Aughrim is an important agricultural, horticultural and timber processing village, and has become a popular venue for walkers. The Sean Linehan Way provides woodland and riverside walking in the valleys of the Three Wells and Macreddin Brooks, and access to nearby Cushbawn Hill.
