With most of us confined within our cities and counties for most of the past year, it’s time to finally appreciate the beauty and wonder that is on our doorsteps. It’s easy to put local activities on the to-do list and put it off; why would we explore within our county when we have the whole world to get through? People come from far and wide to Kildare, appreciating our world-class shopping, excellent family facilities and nature and history we are surrounded by but never realised. We’ve taken some time to put together some excellent Kildare holiday itineraries so you can fill up your days with fun and won’t miss a thing!
THE BENEFITS OF A HOLIDAY ITINERARY
We’ve heard for years that scheduled fun is no fun at all, but we have to disagree. While we don’t want our guests to restrict their time and stick rigidly to our itineraries but having a plan means you can experience the best of Kildare and Naas without spending too long in one place or missing out on something important. Itineraries are even more important for families, whose children crave routine and are hard to ferry around aimlessly. It’s a balancing act. Find a way to ensure you are getting the very best of your time here without military scheduling and your family will thank you for it. Visit our website for a list of fun activities to enjoy during your stay.
1. COUPLES ITINERARIES FOR KILDARE
Romance can be found anywhere if you look hard enough for it. Kildare is full of great opportunities for secluded walks, romantic dinners and exploring the history and culture of places you never knew existed. Take yourselves to the local parks for a picnic, the Royal Canal for a scenic walk and enjoy delicious meals in Herald and Devoy together. The National Stud and Japanese Gardens are a perfect place to explore, make memories together and take some gorgeous pictures. You can treat yourselves to a spa treatment and an afternoon of relaxation and rejuvenation in Osprey Spa & Leisure centre and end your evening with a nightcap in our bar or in your room. Kildare is a great spot for a romantic staycation.
2. FAMILY ITINERARIES FOR KILDARE
Kildare is packed with family fun and we have a selection of family itineraries to inspire you. No matter what age your children are, there are activities to entertain everyone from toddlers to pre-teens. Enjoy the great outdoors with a trip to Tayto Park (40-minutes’ drive from door to door), explore the gorgeous Russborough House and take a day trip to the gorgeous Blessington Lakes. Let your little ones run off some energy in Wallaby Woods, a visit to the indoor fun factory or enjoy a trip to the best family attraction in Ireland, Dublin Zoo. If the weather is bad, spend an afternoon in Osprey Leisure Centre practising your doggy paddle while the grownups enjoy the relaxing thermal suite. Highlight your stay with a family dinner in Herald & Devoy, choosing from our extensive a la carte or kids menus.
