Kildare (Irish: Cill Dara, meaning "church of the oak") is a town in County Kildare, Ireland. Its population of 8,412 (2011 Census) makes it the eighth largest town in County Kildare and the 55th largest in the state, with a growth rate of 8% since the 2006 census. Although Kildare gives its name to the county, Naas is the county town. The town lies on the R445, some 50 km (31 mi) west of Dublin – near enough for it to have become, despite being a regional centre in its own right, a commuter town for the capital.

Opened 7 days a week from 9am -6pm. Last admission 5pm. This state-owned commercial stud farm also incorporates the world famous Japanese Gardens and wild Irish St Fiachra's Garden as well as the Irish Horse Museum, Living Legend's, Gift Shop and restuarant. It is also home to some of Ireland's most famous racehorses.
We arrived just in time for a young man named James to give us a guided tour. He was very knowledgable and you could tell he was very passionate about the history and the horses. You can walk around yourselves but was very happy for the tour. The Japanese Gardens are quaint. Perfect place for a quiet coffee. He cafe had great coffee and scones.

Very busy Sunday afternoon at Newbridge Silverware but the atmosphere was warm and friendly. Whilst there were queues every staff member we dealt with from the security man saying hello and engaging us in a brief friendly chat to the service staff at the counter and restaurant they were so pleasant and friendly.
We also bought some nice sale items so we enjoyed our Newbridge Silverware Visit.
We would return and also recommend a visit to others. Free car parking available.

We spent a fascinating time at Lullymore. I wondered what it would be like in late October but was very pleasantly surprised. We had a guided tour by a very helpful and knowledgeable young man. I was most interested in the early Christian Centre and thought the displays were well presented. Next we had a wander round the animal farm before going on the trip out to the peat bogs. What a fascinating place with a long history. We even had a go at cutting peat! The various Exhibitions have been so well done, I particularly liked the Neolithic Farmstead. Great for a day out. I'd love to see it at Halloween.

Nurney lakes is a great spot for children to learn how to fish and for smaller children to have a play and see lots of farm animals ! Ernie (the owner) has 2 lakes fully stocked and rods hooks and worms so you don't have to bring a thing apart from your picnic ! My two children (age 8) really loved casting their lines and before long caught themselves a rainbow trout each! We ate our lunch by the playground and afterwards Ernie showed the children all the animals around the farm they got to pet Donkeys Rabbits and pot bellied pigs ! They then played in the shed on ride on tractors ! Ernie really makes the place he is so enthusiastic about teaching the children to fish and passionate about his (mostly rescued) animals. We had a great day out!

I went with a group to this little military museum on the Curragh. Spent at least an hour wandering through the small but informative display that dates back to British times. The staff are volunteers and ex army but were very helpful welcoming. The highlight was seeing The Sliabh na mBan Rolls Royce armoured car is now on display in the Curragh Military Museum. This car formed part of General Michael Collins convoy which was ambushed on the 22nd of August 1922 in which he was killed.

We visited on the first of our ten night narrowboat adventure. Unfortunately, we started early with boat drinks, only to learn up the hill that there had been an interruption in the pie supply and thus, no pies to be had but kidney. Several of us passed, but adored the atmosphere, hospitality, and Sean's good nature so much, that we stayed for many pints, resulting in a forgotten bag.
It took a bit to discover the missing item. We called Sean when we realized, and he was fantastic. They had hosted a party the evening we visited and so the bag had been delivered to the party hosts. Sean was most gracious, contacting the host and arranging the bag's return. It was subsequently recovered by friends who motored through again after our departure.
After visiting The Fisherman's, we eagerly developed a 'ten point scale' upon which to rate all the pubs we visited while traveling. It quickly became apparent that no other pub we would see, despite extensive travel, could hold a candle to The Fisherman's charm and curiosity, and thus, we abandoned the scale. It's said that comparison is the thief of joy and this will certainly ring true if you make The Fisherman's your first stop (so you should stop again.)

Located in the heart of the beautiful Curragh Plains, The Bush Pub is a family-run pub that offers a warm welcome to visitors old and new. Soak up the atmosphere and enjoy live music at the weekends. All major sporting fixtures are shown on our TV's and HD Big Screen. Venue hire is available free of charge and finger food can be provided upon request.
Good spot. Friendly pub with good service and a bit of fun! Little shop beside it. Near Newbridge and The Curragh. Would definitely come back! And would recommend!

Had lunch at Chopped. Chose a salad bowl. Staff very efficient and we're very busy. I felt the lunch lacked flavour and left me disappointed.
The shopping centre was excellent t. Great staff in all the stores. Like H&M, Clarke's, Vero Moda, Pavers and Debenhams.
Will definitely be back.
