Located in the heart of the town, Kildare Cathedral occupies one of the most significant ecclesiastical sites in Ireland and is also the site most associated with Ireland’s most famous female saint, Brigid. It is of the earliest documented Irish Christian places of worship and is said to have been a significant ceremonial site since pre-Christian times.
The Norman Cathedral was established Bishop Ralph of Bristol in 1223 and restored in the 19th century. Beside the Cathedral, the 12th century round tower is one of Ireland’s finest surviving examples and, at 33 metres, the second highest in the country.
