Heritage Centre welcomes visitors


Kildare Town Heritage Centre is an exciting  visitor attraction situated in the picturesque town of Kildare. Located in the restored 18th century market house 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 - an audio visual presentation of the town 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.

You can also find out more about the centre and the local historical sites by visiting the centre's website at Using the website you can follow Kildare's Heritage Trail online or do some research before visiting the town in person.
