The Curragh, Co. Kildare

The Currage consists of approximately 5000 acres of softly rolling grasslands. The plain was laid down over years ago when the last Ice Age finally loosened its grip on the land of Ireland, melting glaciers flushed sand and gravel out over the Curragh creating an out washed plain. Major horse racing events are staged in the Curragh and many of the roads in the surrounding area are lined with horse studs. When driving through the Curragh, travelers are often greeted with the sight of sleek, lean thourghough breeds being put through their paces. The Curragh is an ideal place for leisurely walks and picnics.
