Set deep in the heart of lush Co Kildare countryside on an idyllic stretch of the River Liffey, our location is enhanced by its half-hour proximity to Dublin City and its many attractions, from the Book of Kells to its live music venues, to its urban parklands and more.
Meanwhile, our home county of Kildare is known in international horse breeding circles as ‘The Thoroughbred County’. It hosts three top-class racecourses, numerous world-renowned studs and the fascinating Irish National Stud & Gardens, which is open to the general public and certainly worth a visit to get a real sense of Kildare’s horse power. During your stay, if preferred, we can arrange for you a private visit of any of Kildare’s world-renowned stud farms.
We are also brilliantly located for those trailblazers seeking adventure and discovery in Ireland’s Ancient East – a broad region where one can experience 5,000 years of Irish history via a trail encompassing medieval castles and monasteries, fine Georgian mansions, megalithic ruins and a further multitude of scenic touchstones and historical landmarks.
For fans of more contemporary pursuits we are also a stone’s throw from the Kildare Village designer outlet where casual glamour reigns in the shape of chic retail and dining options. Elsewhere, full-on fashionistas will find their fix at Newbridge Silverware Museum of Style Icons, where items of apparel worn by Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Princess Grace, Princess Diana, The Beatles, Kurt Cobain, and many more are exhibited.
