Wicklow has some amazing spots to enjoy the sunshine. This week's weather looks to be pretty good with temperatures hitting as high as 20 degrees, and what better place to spend it than by the sea. Here's a list of eight places in and around Wicklow that do some unreal food to keep you going.

4. Paco's Tacos

Located beside The Fat Fox café in Greystones (which is also worth a visit), Paco's Tacos is open Wednesday-Sunday and serves a delicious range of wine and tacos, including vegetarian and vegan options.
