Autumn has officially landed in Ireland, and with it, brings a crimson carpet of foliage and a chill to the air.

October in Kildare is the perfect time to enjoy all the county has to offer. Amber leaves set the ideal backdrop for autumn walks, with evenings still bright enough to enjoy the crisp, fresh air outdoors.

The warm autumnal palette of misty yellows and auburn tones are filling everyone’s Instagram feeds of late. Here at Into Kildare, we asked the people of the Thoroughbred County to share their best autumn pictures.

Here are some of the best of the bunch:

A stunning shot from Ciaran Bryan of Maynooth University’s south campus. The climbing red ferns give the historical building the quintessential college campus Fall look.

What better place for an autumn walk other than Pollardstown Fen. This peatland is of international importance, as this one of the last of its time in Ireland and Western Europe. We’re loving the orange in the fading sunlight on this beautiful October’s evening. Thanks to Daisy for sending this one our way.
