Kildare is unrivalled when it comes to pretty places to wander around, so we’ve rounded up five of our favourite towns for you to try next Sunday.

Grab your keys, we’re going for a drive!

1. Naas


Located less than an hour outside of Dublin, Naas has an abundance of trails you can explore for the day.

Bring a picnic, grab the dogs and lose yourself in the luscious gardens at Oldtown Demesne.

This beautiful market town is dotted with restaurants and pubs to try after your afternoon stroll.

A Sunday well spent.

2. Newbridge


You can’t go wrong with a trip to Newbridge.

Home to the legendary Christy Moore, Newbridge Silver and the River Liffey, this town is full of character and interesting places to see.

So if you’re looking to do a spot of Sunday afternoon celeb-watching, shopping or a quiet walk by the river, Newbridge has it all.

There’s definitely no shortage of glitz, glamour or walks here.

3. Athy


Athy is a Heritage Town on the River Barrow and the perfect spot for a day out.

The woods of Mullragh and Blackwood are all nearby with plenty of forest walks to try.

After all the walking, the best way to finish up the day is a quick stop at Ardscull Inn restaurant for a slap up meal.

4. Robertstown


If you’re looking to clear your mind and lose yourself in nature, then this is the place for you.

Take a stroll around Mondello Park close to Robertstown or go for a stroll along the Grand Canal, breathe in the fresh air and shake those cobwebs away.

Feeling better already.

5. Maynooth


Maynooth is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque towns in Kildare.

Only half an hour from Dublin, the village has plenty of beautiful boutiques, cafés, restaurants, pubs and a University. Take a wander around the quaint streets or the University grounds and you’ll be blown away.

All that walking will work up an appetite and luckily there are heaps of places to choose from on the Main Street.

Go on, you’ve earned it!
