Maynooth

— 7 nights
Maynooth is a university town in north County Kildare, Ireland. Bring the kids along to Clonfert Equestrian Centre and Maynooth Castle. Explore Maynooth's surroundings by going to Lullymore Heritage and Discovery Park (in Rathangan), Pollardstown Fen Nature Reserve (in Newbridge) and Kildare (The Bog of Allen Nature Centre, Grey Abbey, &more). And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to St. Patrick's College, surround yourself with nature on BargeTrip, identify plant and animal life at Wallaby Woods Donadea, and find something for the whole family at Offroad Driving Center.

To find where to stay, photos, ratings, and tourist information, use the Maynooth trip planner.

Dublin to Maynooth is an approximately 1-hour car ride. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in March, and nighttime lows around 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) so you can drive back home.

Landlocked in Ireland's mid-east region, County Kildare churns out champion racehorses from some of the best agricultural land in the country. For everything equestrian, County Kildare delivers, whether it's the desire to ride a horse, to catch a race, or to visit a small saddlery workshop established in 1880. The workshop, which is well-known in equestrian circles, produces some of the world's best saddles. The county is named for the town of Kildare and has many small towns and villages dotted across the lowland. The rest of the landscape features the Bog of Allen, a natural space rich in plant and animal life with heavily forested areas.
