Glenealy (Irish: Gleann Fhaídhle) is a village 8 km (5.0 mi) west of Wicklow Town, in County Wicklow, on the R752. The Dublin - Rosslare railway line also passes through the village.

Since the extension of the N11 dual-carriageway from Dublin to within 5 km (3.1 mi) of the village in 2004, it has been undergoing rapid growth, attracting people commuting to Dublin.

Transport[edit]

Bus Éireann route 133 serves the village providing links to Dublin, Bray, Wicklow, Rathnew, Rathdrum, Avoca and Arklow.[1]

Sport[edit]

Glenealy is known for its hurling. They have won the Wicklow Senior Hurling Championship 14 times as of 2014, most recently beating Bray in the County Final.
