Newbridge, Co. Kildare

Droichead Nua, (Newbridge) is situated on the River Liffey. The town is a large industrial and commercial centre with a rapidly growing population. 

Droichead Nua is home to Kildare's only greyhound racing track. There are first class golf courses in the area, water sports, fishing and the Curragh Racecourse is within easy access.

Silverware has been crafted in Newbridge since 1934. The passage of half a century has changed little. Craftsmen with a lifetime's experience fashion the finest materials with traditional skills and loving care. The extensive range of Newbridge Cutlery, Jewellery and other Silverware can be seen at the Newbridge Silverware Visitors Centre, just off the industrial ring-road, which is open 7 days a week.
