Get your heart racing with some outdoor adventure, experience the wonder of world-class golf courses, or soothe even the most harried soul with a leisurely cruise down Kildare’s famous canals.
Thrills and spills in Co. Kildare are not just confined to equestrian sports – the county is also home to several of Ireland’s best adventure centres to keep the adrenalin junkies happy. From channelling your inner Lewis Hamilton at Mondello to archery and paintball at Redhills, Kildare is the perfect place to keep the teenage sulks at bay (and no screens in sight!).
Think of outdoor activities and golf may also come to mind. Every year, our prestigious and ancient courses beckon thousands of golfers from all over the world to experience the sport.
Boating and sailing in Kildare is an experience that’s so much deeper than the immediate pleasure of being on the water. Here, a voyage on our waterways is also a trip into the past. Because you’re travelling the same waterways—and enjoying the same vistas—that have been used by countless people for centuries before you. With 82 miles of rivers and canals, Kildare is a paradise for water-lovers.
