  • Mrs Little

    “The only thing I would change is by putting down that it's on a farm as this is misleading as might put some people off or they might think they have access to animals.”

    We really enjoyed our stay

The property

Newbridge 2.8 miles.

Resting in Borahard in County Kildare, on a working dairy farm, is this single-storey, detached cottage, Borahard Lodge.

Lying less than 30 miles from the city of Dublin, Borahard Lodge is a fantastic base for city trips as well as rural adventures, with two bedrooms accommodating up to six guests, it's ideal for families.

Spend time together after big days out in the open-plan living space; while someone is rustling up a delicious dish in the fitted kitchen, the table dining table can be set for all to gather round before toasting to your holiday, afterwards retiring to the homely sitting area before the TV.

Settle down in either of the two family rooms, both hosting a double and a single bed, with one featuring an en-suite shower room, and the other enjoying use of the family bathroom.

Take pleasure in sitting out in the enclosed patio on a fresh morning before you begin the day, or end the evening here with a refreshing drink.

Enjoy a day out at The Curragh Racecourse, a famed thoroughbred venue, with other equestrian events in the area including racing at Naas and Punchestown.

Spend a peaceful afternoon fishing in Robertstown, or practice you swing in one of the several golf courses nearby.

Newbridge is home to a range of shops, pubs and local businesses and is just under three miles away, whilst less than a mile down the road is a petrol station with a SPAR shop and a restaurant and bar, perfect for picking up any essentials or grabbing a bite to eat.

Over the border into Wicklow is the Russborough House and Parklands, with an ornate 18th century Palladian villa to explore, home to collections of porcelain, furniture and art, with beautiful grounds surrounding it too.

Delight in a leisurely walk along the Blessington Greenway linking the town of Blessington with Russborough House, passing the shores of Blessington Lakes through enchanting forest and woodland too, stopping to appreciate the magnificent scenery and wildlife before you.

Families will surely love a trip to Lullymore Heritage & Discovery Park, Wallaby Woods Donadea, Clonfert Pet Farm, and The Kildare Maze.

Reserve at least one day for exploring Dublin too if you've not been before, with attractions including Dublin Zoo, Dublinia, EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum and plenty more.

Enjoy a fun-filled break to Ireland at Borahard Lodge.
