Things to Do in County Kildare
A hotel stay offering so much comfort may make it difficult to leave your room but County Kildare provides plenty of reasons to do so.
Shopping in County Kildare
Kildare Town has all you need for some retail therapy with the emphasis on luxury goods. This is the place to indulge in a bit of chic shopping and boutique browsing. You won't be staying too far from Newbridge Silverware Centre either. Here you can pick up a silver souvenir as a memento of your stay.
Stylish County Kildare
Newbridge also houses the Museum of Style Icons, a permanent and popular free exhibition, with memorabilia and clothing from a range of stars from the music world and the silver screen.
Horseracing in County Kildare
Horseracing is what draws many to County Kildare. More racehorses are bred here than anywhere else in Ireland, so there are numerous stud farms to visit and racecourses to enjoy, notably in Punchestown, Curragh and Kildare’s county town of Naas.
Natural Beauty in County Kildare
It's not all horses and courses, however. Straffan’s scenic location on the River Liffey is home to some astoundingly beautiful butterflies. At The Butterfly Farm you can learn all about them, and the friendly staff make this a fun and educational visit for children and adults alike.
Amazing County Kildare
Naas, the county town of Kildare is home to Ireland’s largest hedge maze. Trail through the maze, get thoroughly lost and then celebrate your escape with a game of crazy golf and a picnic in the delightful surrounding gardens.
Heritage in County Kildare
For something more tranquil there is Castleton House, an 18th century Palladian mansion in Celbridge. This ostentatious residence is a permanent reminder of how the other half once lived. It sits in acres of landscaped grounds that you can explore at your leisure.
