We will meet at The Red Cow LUAS stop and get the bus to Newbridge.
The bus costs €10 return.
I plan on getting the 10:50 coach. There doesn't seem to be an option to buy tickets in advance. So we will buy from the driver
If it is more convenient for you, you can take the Bus Eireann bus and meet us in Newbridge.
Take the 10:45 bus. A day return is circa €13. You can buy your Bus Eireann tickets online or on the day. The 126 stops at a number of locations in Dublin so check the timetable to see where its convenient to pick it up.
In Newbridge we will visit the Whitewater market which is at the Whitewater Shopping Centre. I've checked the forecast and there will be showers but hopefully the weather will be reasonable. There was a fire recently at Pollardstown Fen and it is a bit out of town..so I'm dropping that from the itinerary.
We will walk around town and along by the Liffey. We will visit the Riverbank Arts Centre where there is an exhibition called 'pieces of the garden'
I don't think there is a charge for the exhibition. We can have coffee in the café too.
Next we will visit the museum of style icons at the Newbridge silverware shop
If we find that we are finished very early we do have the option of getting the bus to Kildare town. The Dublin Coach takes 10 minutes to get there and passes through Newbridge every hour.
I think we will have enough to do in Newbridge itself though but we can decide on the day
