Getting Around Kildare

Kildare is located just to the south-west of Dublin. Dublin Airport is located just over an hours' drive away. As it is home to many Dublin commuters, public transport is quite good, with frequent rail services to Dublin, and other rail links to Galway, Mayo, Limerick, Cork, and Kerry. Bus services are also numerous.

Bus Services

Bus Éireann provide services to County Kildare from Dublin, Waterford, Carlow, Tipperary and other counties. For further information on bus services telephone +353 (0)1 836-6111 or see

Rail Services

The Dublin / Cork mainline serves Co. Kildare with stations at Newbridge, Kildare and Athy. There are also suburban services serving Hazelhatch & Celbridge, Sallins & Naas, Newbridge, and Kildare. For further information on rail services, telephone +353 (0)1 836-6222 or visit

Ferry Services

Kildare is located just southwest of Dublin, and is no more than 1.5 hours' drive from Dublin Port / North Wall and Dun Laoghaire.


Again, as Kildare is just outside of Dublin, Dublin Airport is the nearest airport, and is less than 1.5 hours drive from most of Kildare via the M50 motorway.
