Heritage Week is coordinated by the Heritage Council and Local Authority Heritage Officers and supported by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage. National Heritage Week is Ireland’s annual celebration of our built, natural and cultural heritage and is part of a European initiative to encourage people to take an interest in their local heritage.

Many of the events in this guide have been organised by local community and heritage groups who have a passion for heritage which they wish to translate to the people of Kildare.

As we emerge from two difficult years National Heritage Week 2022 is all about engaging with heritage to create a more resilient world, enhancing sustainability and biodiversity.

During Heritage Week there is something for everyone to enjoy from open days at historic buildings to hands-on heritage fun for children, exhibitions, activities, talks, craft demonstrations, re-enactments, tours and much more.

The aim of Heritage Week is to foster a greater understanding and awareness of our own local heritage. Kildare County Council Heritage Office has compiled this listing of events. Most events listed here are free. Participants are advised to confirm details of events in advance as some events require booking. Children are welcome to most events, but young children should be accompanied by an adult. Please dress suitably.
