Video of Kilcoole, County Wicklow, Republic of Ireland

Kilcoole (Irish: Cill Chomhghaill, meaning "Church of Comhghall") is a village in County Wicklow, Ireland. It is three kilometres south of Greystones, 14 kilometres north of Wicklow, and about 25 kilometres south of Dublin. It was used as the set for the Irish television series Glenroe, which ran through the 1980s and 1990s. The village is currently expanding rapidly, and is a dormitory town for many workers commuting to Dublin and Bray.

The village has a large industrial estate to the south. An area of marshland runs along the coast from Kilcoole south to Wicklow town, called the Murragh. This area is home to many endangered species of plant and animal. The beach in Kilcoole is the summertime home of the Little Tern, one of the few places in Ireland where these birds nest. Within the village, is an area of flora known as the Rock which is a huge rock/hill that predates the Cambrian era.

Kilcoole is in the Roman Catholic parish of Kilquade, and the local church, St.Anthony's Church, cost £35,000 to build.

Actress Elaine Cassidy was born in Kilcoole. Cassidy's claim to fame was in her appearance in the film The Others and also starring as the lead in the television show Harper's Island. She attended St Brigid's National School in Kilcoole.

Tenor singer Josef Locke lived at Calary House on Sea Road

Druids Glen Golf Resort, which hosted the Irish open from 1996 to 1999, is located less than a kilometre from Kilcoole, on the Newtownmountkennedy road. Kilcoole Golf Course, a nine-hole parkland course, is also located near the village. It benefits from excellent drainage, allowing for year round golf. As a result, the need for temporary surfaces over the winter period is never encountered. It is largely flat but nonetheless challenging due to the course design.[2] Druids Heath Golf Course, another championship course, is also located in Druids Glen.

Kilcoole was also the setting for the long-running hit TV show Glenroe, which was broadcast on RTÉ One. The programme ran from 1983–2001, and at its height, it had over one million viewers, making it one of the most watched programmes on Irish television. The farm on which it was based is now an open farm, which hosts festive events yearly, as well as being a popular tourist spot all year round.
