About the Area

Arklow's proximity to Dublin led to it becoming a thriving commuter town with a population of 13,009 at the 2011 census. Arklow is at the mouth of the River Avoca (formerly Avonmore). The town is divided by the river, which is crossed by the Nineteen Arches Bridge, a stone arch bridge linking the southern or main part of the town with the northern part, called Ferrybank. There are eight primary schools located around the town (including one Gaelscoil), and four secondary schools.

The N11/M11 from Dublin to Rosslare bypasses Arklow between junctions 20 and 21, becoming a motorway heading southbound from junction 20. This will connect the existing N11 Arklow Bypass with the existing N11 Rathnew/Ashford Bypass creating motorway from Dublin to Gorey. Rail connections are provided by Iarnród Éireann along the Dublin-Rosslare railway line, including commuter and intercity services in and out of the capital. There is also a train to Dundalk available daily. Bus Éireann provides several routes through Arklow. In addition, Wexford Bus operates several services day and night linking Arklow with Dublin Airport.
