Flanagan’s Mill is a traditional Irish pub with an award winning pint of Guinness and lots of craic. Enjoy a pint with their famous slow cooked beef & Kildare red ale pie by the comfort of the fire. You’ll often find a few fiddlers and guitarists on hand to entertain punters.



Kildare Town

Cunningham’s has top-notch grub, an open fire and a ‘fireside’ trad session – what more could you want? Go for a pint and you’ll probably want to stay for another five. Named as “local bar of the year” at The Licensing World Bar Awards, you can soak up the friendly atmosphere and bring your instrument and really get involved in the craic.


The Harp

Kildare Town

It’s a cosy one-room pub with an open fire, flagstone walls and old farmyard doors. So quaint and cosy, in fact, you won’t want to leave. Ever. Only a stones throw from Dublin so if you’re looking to escape the city, you can find your winter haven here.


Kavanagh’s Pub


Slap bang in the middle of Naas town, there’s something for everyone at Kavanagh’s. With the all important snug to hide away in, open fires and a heated beer-garden, you won’t want to leave.
