This Wednesday at 8pm will see Kildare featured in the award winning Holiday Show on TV3.   Kildare natives  Jon Slattery and Ciara Whelan  explore the top tourist attractions in their home county of Kildare.

The episode is all about the thoroughbred county, as Ciara delves right in, betting her life savings on a horse at the Punchestown Races. Jon discovers that there’s even something for the boys at the Newbridge Silverware Museum of Style Icons, and then it’s off to Kildare Village, where the pair enjoy a VIP shopping experience, and once Jon starts, he can’t stop!

Liam Holton, Chair of the Kildare Hospitality Tourism Committee said “This is a great showcase for Kildare, we are delighted to have the support of Punchestown Racecourse, Newbridge Silverware, The K Club and Kildare Village in supporting this project . The show highlights that the county  has such a wide variety of attractions on offer”.
