To the north of the village is a monument to the only major incident of the 1916 Easter Rebellion to take place outside Dublin. This monument carries a plaque with a line from a poem by Thomas Ashe the local schoolmaster: 'Let me carry your cross for Ireland, Lord'. The monument has two images on one side the figure is in the form of Christ on the other side is a revolutionary. This monument is known locally as The Rath Cross.

Beside the village are the kennels and deerpark of the Ward Union Hunt. Fairyhouse Racecourse, southwest of Ashbourne, holds race meetings, on Easter Monday and Tuesday every year with the famous Irish Grand National among the races. There are other meetings during the year.

There is also an 18 hole golf course at nearby Ashbourne Golf Club.
