Kildare, County Kildare
Kildare is, by and large, still an original Irish market town. Dominated by the cathedral and the round tower, defined by its central square with its market hall (now a tourist information center). Parking can be problematic, though not for want of spaces - the car parks tend to be discreetly hidden away, making them hard to find at a first attempt. Unfortunately they are not really advertisements for Kildare as well, with overflowing recycling bins, litter and unhygienic spots very much in evidence. Once you leave this area, however, Kildare presents itself as a thriving community. With history to boot. New commercial developments have thankfully avoided the town center generally.
Monasterevin, County Kildare
Monasterevin is a small town, with Georgian houses, on a flat expanse of country, and occupies a right angle bend on the river Barrow, as it changes direction from east to south.

K Club Course, , County Kildare
(6,368 Metres / Par 72) The layout was designed by Arnold Palmer and cleverly uses the existing woodland and water. Arnold Palmer believes that the golfer should be challenged from the first tee shot down to the final green. At the same time the course should be fair and enjoyable to play. These objectives have been achieved. This course, to be host of the Ryder Cup in 2006, has been host to the Smurfit European Open since 1995, Europe's most sought after trophy after The Open.
