Another shopper’s paradise in County Kildare is amazing Kildare Village.
Kildare Village is Ireland’s only luxury outlet shopping destination and one of 11 luxury shopping destinations in The Bicester Village Shopping Collection. The 11 Villages are located close to some of the most important cities in Western Europe and China (London, Dublin, Paris, Brussels, Frankfurt, Munich, Milan, Barcelona, Madrid, Shanghai and Suzhou). Each Village has its own style, regional flavour and carefully curated mix of boutiques.
Kildare Village, which first opened in September 2006, is located adjacent to the town of Kildare in the heart of Ireland’s most populated region, which is also famed for its tradition of thoroughbred horse breeding and racing. The design of Kildare Village, as individual boutique stores facing an open-air, landscaped pedestrianised boulevard, is inspired by the ambience and scale of the region’s stables and stud farms, creating an intimate and tranquil setting.
Kildare Village is home to 100 boutiques of international fashion and lifestyle brands and the world’s most exciting designers, which include Armani, Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein Jeans, Coach, DKNY, Guess, Jimmy Choo, Karl Lagerfeld, Michael Kors, Mulberry, Prada, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger togeth+er with Irish designers that include Louise Kennedy. All offering up to 60% off the recommended retail price all year around. Some new stores have opened their doors at the new Kildare Village extension: Adidas, Johnsons of Elgin, and Anastasia Beverly Hills.
Great place to visit not only for shopping but also for the experiencing different feel of shopping.
There are also dining options at Kildare Village, from casual eateries, coffee shops & cafes to upmarket restaurants.
