From the place where the grass is ‘a green’ like no other green in the world. A place, entombed in ice for thousands of years, and then sculpted by giant glaciers. And, today, if you are lucky enough to stand at the church door of St. Patricks, Barraniskey, at sunset, you will see just why Co. Wicklow is the called the Garden of Ireland. The Irish words “Barr an Uisce” literal English translation is “above the water”. It is also the Irish name given to Barraniskey, which is a town land set in the heart of the beautiful County of Wicklow, on the East Coast of Ireland. The Irish word “Uisce “ or “water” in English, was used during the time Irish monks first distilled what we now know to be whiskey. They called it “Uisce Beatha” meaning “Water of Life”. Known as the Garden of Ireland, Wicklow represents all that is stunning in Irish countryside.
