Naas Tourist Information
A short 40 kilometre journey from Dublin you'll find the town of Naas. Naas is the county town of County Kildare, a population of over 20,000 makes it the largest town in the North Kildare region. Naas has a special place in the history of East Ireland as the town is known in Irish as 'Nás na Ríogh', meaning the 'Meeting Place of the Kings', and was named so as the town hosted meetings between the pre-Norman Irish kings from the Kingdom of Leinster. Following the Norman invasion of Ireland in the 11th century, Naas was continually used as a meeting place for the Parliament of Ireland.
Naas is a relatively small town, easily seen on foot, with many of the highlights located in the town centre but you'll need to hire a car in order to see the multitude of attractions and scenic beauty found in the surrounding countryside. The surrounding area has historic attractions, religious monuments, activity centres and much more to keep everyone in your travelling party entertained. The town centre offers plenty of accommodation options, entertainment facilities and a vibrant nightlife that comes to life on the weekends that draws crowds from all around the county.
Naas Town Hall is situated in the heart of the town centre and has been here for over 200 years. The building’s original purpose was that of a jail but has been the seat of the municipal government for the past 150 years. The Town Hall features impressive architecture and is often noted as visitors favourite photo spot when in Naas. Just across the road one can find St. David’s Church, one of the more beautiful sites in Naas. This church is believed to have been built around the 13th century by Norman Barons for worship to the Church of Ireland.
A church of similar name. Church of Our Lady & St. David, is a Roman Catholic Church dating back to the 19th century. Visitors will find an impressive structure of Gothic revival design with a soaring steeple. The interior is even more impressive and taking time to experience a quiet moment of reflection is recommended for all those visiting Naas.
In the small village of Kilteel, 6 miles from Naas, you'll find a 13th century castle of the same name. The castle was originally built on the site of an ancient monastic settlement, Kilteel Castle is steeped in mystery. Having changed hands many times throughout time the castle's history is somewhat unknown with large gaps between remaining records. For history enthusiasts and fans of impressive ruins this should most definitely be on your to do list.
The Curragh is a 5000-acre flat plain a few miles south of Naas and appears, at first, to be just a huge empty area but on the contrary this land has a huge amount of history associated with it and plenty of attractions. The flat open plains has seen plenty of military activity throughout history as it was the site of numerous battles, a common mustering area for large forces, and is now the home of the Irish Defence Forces training facilities. There is a racecourse adjacent to the plains which sees some of Europe's biggest horse racing events take place here every year. During your time on the Curragh you should take some time to visit the famous Japanese Gardens or venture into Pollardstown Fen, the largest fen in the country. The Curragh has even appeared on the big screen as a huge amount of Mel Gibson’s Oscar winning Braveheart was filmed here.
