Castletown House, one of the finest Palladian homes in Ireland, gives your family a place for artistic expression. This period house plays host to theatre shows, concerts and creative workshops all year round. The corkscrew-shaped Wonderful Barn on the grounds will inspire young minds as much as the annual Park Run on its 550 acres of parkland.
No other country town combines learning and leisure as effortlessly as Celbridge. Beyond the classrooms of the primary and secondary schools here, history is brought to life with Arthur’s Way, a 16km heritage trail that captures the story of the Guinness stout maker across scenic northeastern Kildare.
Beginning where the Liffey meets the Rye, this historical journey, taken by bike or on foot, will have you admiring Leixlip Castle, St. Mary’s Church, the Grand Canal and Lyons Estate as you discover the life and times of Ireland’s most celebrated brewer.
