Kildare Town Heritage Centre is an exciting visitor attraction situated in the picturesque town of Kildare.

Located in the restored 18th century market house, Kildare Town Heritage Centre is a multi media exhibition centre telling the story of Kildare past and present.

Your host Cogitosus, a 7th century monk, will take you on a fascinating journey through time. This audio visual presentation of the town takes you from when St Brigid established her church in 480ad, to later centuries when Kildare was raided by Vikings and later ruled by Normans.

Kildare Town Heritage Centre is the ideal starting point for a tour of Kildare Town. An integral part of the story of Kildare is to visit the historical sites after visiting the centre.

Facilities: Audio Visual Presentation | Partial Disabled Access | Guided Tours Available - Must pre-book | Retail Outlet.
