Usually a wet day on holiday means sheltering inside with not much to do. Luckily we’re used to having a rainy day or two in Ireland and you’ll find lots of indoor activities and attractions for kids and adults alike.
There’s nowhere quite like Kildare, when the sun shines. From stunning hiking trails, to beautiful canals and the old relics of Ireland’s Ancient East, the Thoroughbred County really is superb! But let’s face it, we get our fair share of rainy days, and we’re not always up for donning the wellies on a wet day. Rather than let the bad weather dampen our spirits, today at Into Kildare, we’ve rounded up the best things to do in Kildare when it rains!
