Heritage, Arts & Culture

Kildare has a long, rich history, from being a corner stone of early Irish Christianity, a seat of the ancient Kings of Leinster to its foundation as a county by King Edward I. Every brick and stone of the many castles, grand houses, and important religious sites dotted through the rolling Kildare countryside has a story to tell.

Killashee has been at the heart of this long history since its inception in the fifth century. Here are some of our favourite historical sites to visit in our incredible county.
