Video of Newtownmountkennedy, County Wicklow, Republic of Ireland

Newtownmountkennedy (Irish: Baile an Chinnéidigh, meaning "Kennedy's town") is a small town in County Wicklow, Ireland. It developed within the historic townland of Ballygarny (Irish: Baile Ó gCearnaigh). 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.

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.

Newtownmountkennedy Primary School (formerly St. Joseph's NS) is located just west of the village. It was formerly split into three buildings, one for male students, and one for female students, while the third building was reserved for the Centre for Autism. The boys' school was known as St Joseph's, while the girls' was known as St Bridget's. In 2007, the two schools were merged, leaving the lower classes (Junior infants, Senior infants and First class) in the former girls' school, while the remaining classes (Second class, Third class, Fourth class, Fifth class and Sixth class) took residence in the former boys' school. The autism centre stayed in the third building. The name given to the new school is Newtownmountkennedy Primary School.

The majority of secondary school students travel to the nearby Coláiste Chroabh Abhann in the neighbouring village of Kilcoole.

The area is well served by bus services. Dublin Bus route 184 runs every half an hour connecting the town with Kilpedder, Greystones and Bray. Bus Eireann route 133 runs every hour off peak and up to every 15 minutes on peak connecting the town with Dublin, Bray and Wicklow.

The closest train stations are Greystones and Kilcoole. Greystones and the further, bigger Bray Daly station are accessible by route 184.

The nearest airport is Dublin Airport served by the 133 route and the nearest airfield is Newcastle Aerodrome.

The closet ferry ports are Dún Laoghaire or Dublin to the north and Rosslare Europort to the south
