Known for its sociable spirit, which is only natural since Celbridge is the birthplace of Arthur Guinness, this popular commuter town in county Kildare is steeped in character. Its wide choice of attractions, activities and sporting pursuits show a vibrant community with a lust for life. Located on the banks of the River Liffey, Celbridge brings diversity to your downtime. Keen rowers or canoeists in the family will be happy to learn of local clubs, while budding golfers can take a shot at future stardom with 5-star courses such as The K Club nearby. If enjoying good food with friends is more your thing, this silver medal winner in the 2019 Tidy Towns has cafés and restaurants championing the finest local produce.

Broaden your horizons

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.

Plenty of pursuits for your social diary

Get Going with Great Connectivity

Embrace the open road with the Celbridge interchange on the M4 bringing you to Dublin city centre. If you prefer to let Dublin Bus take care of the driving, the 67 and 67X services travel to Merrion Square and UCD Belfield. Bus Eireann also gives you the option of taking the 115, which leaves you at Connolly station. Hazelhatch station is ideally located 3 kilometres from Celbridge Village, giving you the comfort of the train and the opportunity to work onboard. The convenience of a feeder bus from the village to the station means you can make your morning service on time.
