County Kildare has a rich heritage of monuments and architectural structures stretching across the county. The history of the county can be traced through these monuments which range from the prehistoric to the modern era, and from the humble vernacular streetscapes and farmsteads to the magnificent Palladian mansions such as Castletown House in Celbridge. Kildre.ie has put together some of the highlights of our county's historical sites, some well known, some less well known, in the hope that highlighting these sites furthers the appreciation of the rich and diverse structural heritage produced over the millennia by the people who have lived in what is now County Kildare.
The rich variety of archaeological and architectural heritage are almost too numerous to list here. It is hoped that this list represents the main sites of interest to the general public and we hope that the list will grow over time with your help. If you are aware of a monument which should be listed here, please let us know.
