Roses Head for Kildare

An International Rose of Tralee Festival delegation of thirty-three Roses will be visiting County Kildare on the 15th of August.  

The schedule and itinerary for the Roses has been arranged by Into Kildare, the Tourism Body for County Kildare, and will be focused on the north of the county. The Roses will be staying in Barberstown Castle where they will also enjoy a myriad of activities including a black-tie gala dinner.

The public are being encouraged to go out to meet the Roses when they visit north Kildare on the 15th of August.  Just some of the places they will visit include the village of Ardclough, Cliff at Lyons Estate, Leixlip Castle, the home place of Arthur Guinness in Celbridge, Carton House and The K Club.  

The Roses will enjoy some fun activities in each of these locations, including axe throwing in Carton House and golf at The K Club.  They will also experience a mini "Taste of Kildare" experience with food from "Farm to Fork" at Cliff at Lyons and a delectable formal dinner at Barberstown Castle.
