Lighting the Hill of Allen – St. Brigid’s Eve 2022

Jan 31, 2022 (6:00 PM) - Feb 01, 2022 (12:00 AM)

Into Kildare to illuminate the Hill of Allen again for the second time ever as part of this year’s festivities to honour Kildare’s very own patron saint.

The historic landmark will emit a bright white light from Monday evening January 31st on the eve of St Brigid’s Day for a number of hours and will remain lit until midnight and will once again light up from 6pm on February 1st until midnight.

Members of the public will also be able to view the ‘lighting up’ from their own homes or by logging onto Into Kildare’s Facebook page or visiting the website –

In addition to this, the tourism body for Kildare has confirmed that candles will be available to the public from libraries all across the county as they have called on local communities and businesses to come together and shine their own lights to honour St Brigid on the eve of February 1st.

A series of family and child friendly orientated events will also take place, in addition to a children’s colouring competition.

Stay tuned on the Into Kildare website and social media pages for updates on joining us in celebrating St. Brigid’s Day 2022.
