Beer, food and a roaring fire – what more do you need to warm the cockles this winter?
Relaxing by an open fire when it’s cold outside is our idea of the perfect winter outing so we’ve rounded up five of the cosiest firesides in Kildare we think you should try.
Lounge around on comfy sofas and bask in the warmth of a burning fire – these picturesque fires are crying out to be treated like your home away from home.
1. The K Club
Is this the cosiest fireside in Co Kildare? The K Club know how to celebrate Christmas and a relaxing evening by the fire with a glass of mulled wine or hot chocolate sounds like heaven right now.
2. Flanagan’s Mill, Sallins
Flanagan’s Mill is a traditional Irish pub with an award winning pint of Guinness and lots of craic. Enjoy a pint with their famous slow cooked beef & Kildare red ale pie by the comfort of the fire. You’ll often find a few fiddlers and guitarists on hand to entertain punters.
3. Cunningham’s , Kildare Town
Cunningham’s has top-notch grub, an open fire and a ‘fireside’ trad session – what more could you want? Go for a pint and you’ll probably want to stay for another five. Named as “local bar of the year” at The Licensing World Bar Awards, you can soak up the friendly atmosphere and bring your instrument and really get involved in the craic.
Two things to warm you up on a wet miserable #evening. An open #fire and an #irishwhiskey Week 11 of our #52weeksofwhiskey comes from @walshwhiskey in the shape of #WritersTears #RedHead This exquisite, triple-distilled #singlemalt is matured only in select handpicked #Spanish #sherry butts which have previously been seasoned with the finest #Oloroso sherry. It is the influence of these scarce butts that give this expression of Writers’ Tears its signature rich, ruby hue and hence the moniker – ‘Red Head’. The expression is #distilled without chill filtering as nature intended and at a distinctive 46% ABV. #kildare #ireland #cunninghams #whiskeywednesday
4. The Harp, Kildare Towns
It’s a cosy one-room pub with an open fire, flagstone walls and old farmyard doors. So quaint and cosy, in fact, you won’t want to leave. Ever. Only a stones throw from Dublin so if you’re looking to escape the city, you can find your winter haven here.
5. Kavanagh’s Pub, Naas
Slap bang in the middle of Naas town, there’s something for everyone at Kavanagh’s. With the all important snug to hide away in, open fires and a heated beer-garden, you won’t want to leave.
