Kildare Village is located in County Kildare, just off the M7 and less than an hour's drive from Dublin.
At Kildare Village Outlet Shopping, you can swap the bustle of the streets of Dublin for the breathtaking beauty of the countryside and browse for leading designer labels in a tranquil village setting. Here, the lovely village setting blends with the local landscape and tranquil pedestrianised streets are lined with the sort of top-name boutiques normally only found on Dublin's most exclusive streets.
When it's time to pause and catch up with friends and family, arrange to meet in Starbucks, where you can cosy up on a sofa and chat over coffee, or enjoy a more leisurely lunch or dinner at Italian restaurant L'Officina. And with so much to see and do nearby, and a wide selection of stylish and comfortable accommodation, it makes sense to turn a visit to Kildare Village into a longer break.
Designer Discount Shopping
Kildare Village offers exceptional value with reductions of up to 60% at over 50 of your favourite designer shops all year round. Find excellent buys from premium labels, including sassy shoes at LK Bennett, stylish casual menswear at Polo Ralph Lauren, cute childrenswear and shoes at Petit Bateau and Clarks, and hip sportswear and urban streetwear at Nike, Reebok and Quiksilver.
We boast the only Bally boutique in the whole of Ireland, while you'll find inspirational ideas at affordable prices for the home too - from retro-style Cath Kidston's chic bedspreads and cushions to fine china at Villeroy & Boch and luxury candles and elegant vases from Kenneth Turner.
Food and Drink
Whether meeting up with friends and family or enjoying a quick refreshment stop, Kildare Village has a couple of great choices.
Sample fresh pasta and a glass of pinot grigio at L‘Officina, or if time is more precious, sink into an armchair with your favourite coffee and a slice of cake at Starbucks.
Venture outside the Village, and there's an abundance of fine dining venues using only the freshest seasonal ingredients to create delicious dishes.
Slowly sip a pint in front of the roaring fire and then savour award-winning cooking at the The Hanged Man's pub and restaurant or savour the exquisite seafood at celebrity chef Richard Corrigan's acclaimed Bentley's Bar & Grill in Dublin or his more casual family-friendly Café La Serre located in an old mill at The Village at Lyons in Celbridge.
