Colour coded trails unlock Naas' hidden delights

Aine Mangan CEO Into Kildare and Naas councillor Bill Clear

Naas is a place whose past was touched by some of Ireland’s most iconic individuals from St Patrick to the Fitzgeralds, and colourful events such the arrival of the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) for the Punchestown Races. 

Choose your own path and follow one of the five colour-coded historic trails to unlock the hidden treasures of Naas’ interesting history.

You don’t have to roam too far from the centre of town to discover stories of the Moat Theatre, the Town Gates and the Town Hall.
