Kildare Monastic Trail

County Kildare is at the heart of the story of the dawn of Christianity in Ireland, and some of Ireland’s most famous saints like Brigid, Colmcille and Patrick have strong links with the county. Narrated by Kildare actor Liam Quinlivan, this free audioguide to the Kildare Monastic Trail will lead you to atmospheric ruins of ancient monasteries, where you will encounter some of Ireland’s best preserved round towers, panel by panel descriptions of high crosses and fascinating tales of history and folklore.

This audioguide was produced by Abarta Audioguides in conjunction with Kildare County Council and with the kind support of the Heritage Council. We would like to thank Sharon Greene of Castledermot Local History Group, Noel Dunne National Roads Authority archaeologist, Mario Corrigan of Kildare Library Service and Kildare Heritage Officer Bridget Loughlin for all of their advice, support and information during the production of this guide.

This audioguide is an action of the County Kildare Heritage Plan.
