Try your luck at the Curragh
Naas Farmers Market
Kildare has a long documented history with abundant evidence of ancient habitation plus early Christian sites, anglo-Norman mottes, many castles and 17th & 18th century houses and mansions to explore. The Curragh has a long association with armies since the 12th century but is now best known as the premier racecourse in Ireland and home to the Irish Classics. A must for any horse race enthusiast is a visit to the Irish National Stud and Japanese Gardens where you can visit the ‘living legends’ enjoying their retirement.
