Clane, Co. Kildare

Clane is an attractive town halfway between Maynooth and Naas. The River Liffey flows past its outskirts and the Grand Canal is within a couple of miles. It is also close to Mondello Racing Circuit , home to Irish Motor Racing.


The beautiful church of St Michael & All Angels stands in the townland of Millicent, about a mile outside the village of Clane. Consecrated in 1883 and built in the Hiberno Romanesque style, it contains stunning art work, including examples of Cloissone and Scraffito.

Donadea Forest Park is located on the road to Kilcock, this park is situated in the lush lands of Kildare and is fairly typical of demesne landscape. It comprises mixed woodland. The nature trail is somewhat less than 2.5km long and winds through the various natural and man-made elements that make up Donadea. The facilities include a car park, picnic site, toilet and a variety of forest walks. A shop opens during the summer months.

Abbeyfield Equestrian Centre in Clane caters for people of all ages and for all levels. Private tuition can be arranged as well as the opportunity to hunt. A must for all horse enthusiasts.
