Kildare’s food and drink culture is thriving. With restaurants, bars, gastropubs, micro breweries and cafes, the county is establishing itself as one of Ireland’s most exciting foodie destinations.
The places you visit can tell stories as interesting as the food itself. In Kildare, a day out can include a full Irish from a quiet little cafe, fish and chips from a canal-side bistro, a home-grown lunch in a scandinavian barn, or a gourmet picnic in the grounds of a castle. And an evening out, especially in our towns and villages, could take you anywhere from an oyster bar to a Michelin-starred restaurant, a country inn, a warm pub, or a family-friendly spot overlooking the canal. Don’t forget to enjoy a craft beverage—or two—along the way.
Here’s an idea: stop reading about all this incredible bounty, and come here and taste it for yourself.
