The thouroughbred county
Set in Ireland’s Ancient East, Kildare offers a wonderful destination with sites and activities for the whole family. Relax and unwind in the county’s amenities including shopping, enviable spectacular views, mountain walks, castles, historic sites and family activities.
Kildare is located 50 km west of Dublin, close enough for ease of access, yet just the right distance to escape from the city. The county is steeped in history, having once been the home of Saint Brigid, one of Ireland’s patron saints.
Kildare is home to Ireland’s top racecourses including The Curragh – hosting the Irish Derby, Punchestown Racecourse – the venue for the famous Irish National Hunt Festival and also Naas Racecourse – offering an enjoyable day at the races.
Get up close and personal at the Irish National Stud, where visitors can take a guided tour or venture to the adjoining Japanese Gardens.

The house was built between the years 1722 and 1732 for William Conolly, speaker of the Irish House of Commons and, at the time, Ireland’s richest man. Take a guided tour or meander the house in your own time.
