We are open all year-round, Monday to Sunday for group bookings for eight or more and individuals can join our open tag gaming sessions every weekend so you don’t need a group.

On Friday September 20th over 1600 venues across the island of Ireland will open up after hours with a programme of free cultural entertainment, as part of Culture Night 2019. For us in county Kildare this is a special year as we celebrate our 10th anniversary. It has been a long journey since we first started in 2010, but the excitement and the involvement of the local groups and communities hasn’t changed.

Big and small venues will be open and free till late; among them Kilcock Art Gallery, Maynooth Castle, the National Science and Ecclesiology Museum, The Orchard, Bog of Allen Nature Centre, KLeisure, Newbridge Silverware, Dance Tones, United Nations Training School, De Bruir Studio, Burtown House and Gardens.
Public Art Specialist Rina Whyte will guide you into a journey populated by giant balls, great warriors and wooden horses; Athy Film Club will present a new local documentary produced by Storytelling
Productions and directed by Mikey Aldridge; Kildare Village will launch their partnership with IMMA and showcase some works from the international group show Desire: A Revision, From the 20th Century to the Digital Age; a special 10th anniversary Photo Booth will travel from venue to venue in Naas to get you in the picture! Not to be missed also the 3rd edition of Kildare Portrait of the Year Competition, watch while artists portrait two celebrities in the stunning Castletown House. All this and much more will be happening on Culture Night; there is something for every taste!
This year county Kildare is honoured to have as Local Ambassador Margaret Becker, a stained – glass artist and printmaker, she has been immersed in the arts scene in Kildare for many years. She joined the Graphic Studio in 1973 and she has worked with Patrick Pye and Patrick Pollen and examples of her stained glass can be seen in many well known churches and public buildings in Ireland. She also founded the Leinster Printmaking Studio in Clane in 1998, an artist led studio.
Commenting on this year’s programme of events in county Kildare, Margaret said: “It was a great honour to be invited to be Kildare’s Culture Night Ambassador this year. Although I have been immersed in the arts scene in Kildare for many years, I know there is a lot more to discover and I will use this role to do so. I have a keen interest in passing on knowledge and skills to budding artists and I am pleased to see so many events in the Culture Night programme that will appeal to all ages. Hoping to see you along the way!”
This Culture Night wrap yourself up in Culture!

Culture Night is an annual public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. This year Culture Night Kildare celebrates its 10th anniversary and we plan to celebrate it with an even bigger and greater programme.
It will take place on Friday 20th September 2019 and, exclusively in county Kildare, also on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd. On Culture Night Weekend, arts and cultural organisations and venues of all shapes and sizes, including national cultural institutions, local groups and heritage sites, extend their opening hours to allow for increased access to the public and special and unique events and workshops are specifically programmed at participating locations. Everything is available free of charge.
Culture Night happens because many people share a vision and enthusiasm for enjoying, celebrating and promoting creativity and culture. In addition to single events, Kildare County Council are also supporting community projects that will contribute to the promotion of the programme in the weeks prior to Culture Night. They must involve local groups (such as GAA clubs, schools and so on) and produce a visible outcome in one or more town’s centres. The projects selected will be awarded with a €500 prize.
Kildare County Council support all these groups coordinating the programme, sharing information and knowledge and covering some of the costs.
Every organisation or group is invited to plan their own event and to promote them locally. If you or your group would like to take part don’t hesitate to get in touch. We can help you find the right venue or the right group.
The deadline to register an event or a community project is Friday June 14th.

Not content with being Ireland’s biggest car show, JAPFEST 2019 now aims for the title of ‘biggest drift event in the world’ as the Link ECU DGX concludes an incredible year of action alongside the Drift Masters GP European championship.
45 of Europe’s best drivers, representing 20 nations, will invade Mondello Park to fight the Irish on the infamous and highly dangerous ‘Global Warfare’ layout. Not for the faint-hearted!
