An Opportunity in Kildare

The biggest town in the picturesque County Kildare, Newbridge offers culture, heritage, shopping and attractions for the entire family. Situated on the banks of the River Liffey, it’s surrounded by unique landscapes and historical sites, including the Hill of Allen and the rolling plains of the Curragh. Also located just 27 miles from Dublin, its excellent transport links allow you to travel to the capital in as little as 26 minutes.

A glorious blend of old and new, the town of Newbridge has a lot to offer. Best known for being the home of Newbridge Silverware, who have been manufacturing cutlery and jewellery since 1934, the company’s award-winning visitor centre offers everything from a contemporary shopper’s paradise to a unique factory tour. Also famous for its horse racing, the Curragh Racecourse is situated between Newbridge and Kildare and is one of the most iconic sporting venues in the world.

In the town’s compact central district, you will find the Riverbank Arts Centre, a high-quality venue that hosts a vast array of live events and cultural programs all year round. It’s also a popular choice for shoppers, with people from neighbouring counties often travelling to Newbridge to visit the wealth of shops on offer. Our state-of-the-art Optical Express clinic is located in Whitewater Shopping Centre, one of Ireland’s largest shopping centres outside of Dublin.
