“Grand-looking hotel with spa and fitness options” - AA Inspector
KILDARE, COUNTY KILDARE
Our Inspector's view
Located a short drive from the town of Naas and 30 kilometres from Dublin, Killashee Hotel has its origins in the Victorian period. Some rooms are available in the original house, but the bulk of the accommodation is in two more modern wings to the rear. Turners Restaurant is an opulent setting for dinner and breakfast with its high ceilings, draped windows and crisp linens. Less formal dining is available throughout the day in the stylish Bistro. There is an award-winning spa and fitness centre in the grounds. Conference facilities are a particular feature of the property, that has a strong reputation for weddings and family celebrations.

About the area
Discover County Kildare
Just to the left of Dublin, County Kildare is one of Ireland’s richer counties. It’s home to 140 racehorse stud farms, and a number of hi-tech industries.
Kildare also has a large number of peat bogs, the largest of which is the Bog of Allen. This amazing area has provided Ireland with peat for centuries, as well as preserving some of the nation’s most interesting and revealing archaeology. The bog holds up to 20 times its own weight in water and, in places, the peat can be 32 feet or more in depth.
For centuries Kildare was a struggling frontier town on the edge of the English Pale (area controlled by England). However, with the development of the Curragh, and the construction of the turnpike road from Dublin to southwest Ireland in the middle of the 17th century, the town’s fortunes revived.
You can see the last vestiges of Kildare Castle behind the Silken Thomas public house. Although a motorway cuts across its heart, the area known as the Curragh, which begins on the eastern edge of town, is still the largest tract of semi-natural grassland in Europe.
