基爾代爾鎮的歷史可以追溯到 5th 世紀，它的名字來自蓋爾語，Cill Dara，意思是橡樹教堂，由聖布里吉德在橡樹下的遺址上建立的修道院。 該鎮擁有豐富的遺產和歷史，原始的 19th century Market House offers a glimpse into the past through an immersive virtual reality experience, a great starting point for your visit. St Brigid’s Cathedral and Round Tower are nearby – the tower stands almost 33 metres high and is the highest climbable round tower in Ireland, you’ll be sure to get a great view of the town and Curragh Plains. St Brigid’s Well is a short walk away and a visit to Solas Bhride Hermitages will tell her story. The first international motor race to be held in Britain or Ireland, the Gordon Bennett Cup, passed through Kildare. In more modern times the town is a destination for shopaholics visiting Kildare Village and for a great day out at the world famous Irish National Stud and Gardens.
