Visit Kildare Town

Hi all,

Having looked into this I think the best option is to take the bus from Westmoreland Street 

This is a Dublin Coach bus http://dublincoach.ie/index.php

Tickets are €5 each way. If you wish you could book your Dublin to Kildare journey online to secure a seat.

I wouldn't book the return journey as I am not sure exactly what time we will finish the day.

The bus will drop us to Kildare Outlet Village at 11:40

We will walk or take the shuttle bus into Kildare town from here.

Follow the walking tour trail ourselves

Stop into one of the pubs or restaurants in Kildare for a late lunch

After this we can take the shuttle bus to  The  National Stud.. there will be a guided tour at 4pm

When finished here we will return to Kildare Village Outlet ...we can take a look around the shops before getting the bus back to Dublin.

Please note..the shuttle buses are somewhat infrequent on Sundays so we may need to walk between locations if our times do not match up with the shuttle bus.

The town, the outlet village and the National Stud are all roughly 15 minutes walk from each other so it shouldn't be too tiring even if we do end up walking.

    Hey Elaine :)
    I'm really interested to join this trip to Kildare.
    How would we get there?
    Found something on the internet: http://www.dublincoach.ie/services/dublin-coach-journey-planner.php (From Dublin - Red Cow LUAS to Kildare - Market Square (6am - 12pm))

      Hi Ramona,there are trains to Kildare from Heuston but the fare is quite expensive. Bus Eireann also run buses from Connolly Station / Busaras to Kildare - the126. However, Dublin Coach is cheaper and has a more frequent service. I think it would be the best option

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
