Newtownmountkennedy, Co. Wicklow

Newtownmountkennedy is a small town in County Wicklow, Ireland. It developed within the historic townland of Ballygarny . It acquired its present name in the mid-seventeenth-century, when Sir Robert Kennedy, M.P. for Kildare, made it his principal residence. It is just off the N11 road to Wexford, just south of Kilpedder and south-west of Greystones. It is about 15 km north of Wicklow town, 15 km south of Bray and approximately 35 km from Dublin. The R772 regional road passes through the village. This was the main Dublin-Wexford route, the N11, but the village was bypassed by the new N11 dual carriageway in 1990.

The area is currently expanding rapidly and is a dormitory town for many workers commuting to Bray and Dublin.

The headquarters of Coillte, the Irish Forestry Board, are situated in the village forest. Newtownmountkennedy is in the Roman Catholic parish of Kilquade and one of the Kilquade parish's two chapels of ease is located in the village at the junction with the Roundwood Road.
