Aughrim has been a multiple-winner of the Tidy Towns Award over the past number of years. The Meath Arms is located on the main street and plays its part in keeping the high standards that visitors have come to expect.
Since opening in 1728, the Meath Arms has been run by several generations of the Phelan family. The ten bedrooms have recently been refurbished to provide the modern needs to a tradition environment. Rooms are set with antique furniture and a television. All en-suites have a shower but some rooms also have a bath available.
The 'Grainstore Restaurant' is located on the ground floor of the Meath Arms. It opens from Thursday to Saturday for dinner in the evenings and on Sunday afternoons for lunch. Given enough notice however, a group with at least 8 people can pre-book the restaurant to open for any evening in the week. The food is reasonably priced and an early-bird menu is available until 7pm.
The Meath Arms can arrange transport by taxi between the Iron Bridge on the Wicklow Way and Aughrim. Walkers who wish to take a break from the trail will find no shortage of ways to spend a second day in Aughrim. The Sean Linehan Walk starts from the edge of the town and provides a small network of woodland trails along the Macreddin River. The longest of these routes is around 6km. Horse-riding, fishing and golf are also available locally.
