Home - Ireland - County Kildare
County Kildare is west of Ireland’s capital, Dublin. The central Curragh plain is horse-breeding territory. Here, the Irish National Stud farm is known for its Horse Museum and Japanese Gardens. Nearby, Curragh Racecourse holds regular events. Kildare town is home to St. Brigid’s Cathedral, with a 12th-century round tower that offers panoramic views. Heather and gorse top the Bog of Allen’s peatlands to the north.
