Kildare Town Heritage Centre,
Exit 13 on M7.
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.
Kildare Town Heritage Centre is in a restored 18th century market house. Your virtual host is Cogitosus, a 7th century monk. He will take you on a fascinating journey through time via an audio visual presentation of the town from when St. Brigid established her church in 480 AD, to later times when Kildare was raided by Vikings and later ruled by Normans.
