What to See & Do in Kildare

The Wonderful Barn

Built on the original grounds of Castletown House, this amazing and beautifully named building really is wonderful and well worth a post all of its own.

Abbeyfield Country Pursuits

Abbeyfield is only a 20 minute drive from Dublin but you feel like the city is a million miles away.

The National Stud and Japanese Gardens

If Kildare is the home of the horse in Ireland, this is it's headquarters.

Castletown House

This beautiful Palladian mansion is one of the finest historic houses in Ireland, and it's terrible to think how close it came to being lost.

Kildare, Co Kildare

Kildare is a town where the horse is king, surrounded as it is by race courses, training stables and stud farms, most famously the Irish National Stud.
