If you’re planning a trip to Naas, we highly recommend a relaxing yet informative cruise down the Grand Canal with BargeTrip.ie. Visit the Leinster Aqueduct or perhaps Digby Bridge while admiring the locks and life on the canal.  Afterwards, pop into Lock 13 just outside the barge in Sallins which is home to Kildare Brewing and some amazing pub grub!

You can stay close to the centre in Trial 1 and start with Naas Town Hall which was built in 1854 or venture further afield to Tandys Bridge in Trail 3 named after James Tandy who lived in the adjacent Millbank House in the early 1800’s!
