    If you are arriving to Kildare by train, there is a free shuttle bus waiting in front of the station that goes to the Outlet vilage and National stud.
    Only check with the driver the schedule to go back. It is important if you are going to the National stud since it is not very close to the Kildare village itself.

Kildare Shopping

    Few minutes walking distance from the centre of Kildare is a Kildare Village - Outlet shopping centre.

    There are ... I would say some 30 outlets of shops that you can find in Dublin. Prices are, of course, lower than in Dublin.
    Mostly, they are clothes shops, but some have sportsware, shoes, things for home.

    There is also nice Italian restaurant where you can have a lunch and next to the outlet village is a playground for kids.

    What to pay: Depends on the shop, but anyway less than in Dublin in same shops.
