Tonight, I am reporting on visitor sites close to the town of Kildare, some 50 km west of Dublin. Kildare has a population of about 8600.
Here is the nearby Irish National Stud allied with which are Japanese Gardens, Saint Fiachra’s Garden and the Horse Museum.
- The Irish National Stud Company was formed in 1945 to promote the interests of the Irish bloodstock industry which continues today. It is possible to join a guided tour of the equine site which included the Sun Chariot Yard, Foaling Unit, Stallion Boxes, Mating Area and a few thoroughbred stallions.
- The Japanese Garden dates back over 100 years and represents the Life of Man including birth, learning, engagement, marriage, old age, etc.
