"The Country Drive" County Kildare by edwis

County Kildare Travel Guide: 52 reviews and 175 photos

Driving from Athlone (Baile Atha Luain)

through Tullamore and Kildare (Cill Dara) to Glendalough (Gleann da Loch) is quite an adventure. You never know if the road will be a full two lanes, one and one-half, or a bridge where only one vehicle can pass at a time. Three times we came across sheep on the road. Kildare has the National Stud Farm, and the region with its many house farms is reminiscent of Kentucky. We saw several thatched cottages as well. Of course, we stopped in Kildare for our daily fix of historic ruins and churches.
