The Curragh, situated between the town of Kildare and Newbridge, is an extensive tract of flat unclosed grassland and consists of almost five thousand acres. The beautiful stretch of land with its soft springy grass was known as St. Brigid’s Pastures.
One of the most popular legends associated with St. Brigid is that of the legend of the cloak.
During your walk on The Curragh, (approximately 1 hour) you will hear the legend of the cloak and experience walking on the grounds that Brigid walked on 1500 years ago where she tended her flocks of sheep.
Please dress weather appropriate and wear suitable footwear for soft/wet ground underfoot.
