Add a flourish to the last weekend of summer with a visit to Kildare Village

Make the most of the last weekend of summer and head to Kildare Village where there’s not only terrific shopping, but fabulous food and a fun, friendly atmosphere.


The summer’s almost over, but not quite. There’s still plenty of fun to be had over the last weekend of August, whether you’re travelling to Electric Picnic or not.

The Stradbally festival will, as usual, see hoards of friends and families roadtripping it down to County Laois for a fantastic weekend of music, food and fun.

If you’re one of the many, then why not make a pit stop at Kildare Village on the way there or back? It’s got a wealth of festival-style clothing from brands such as The Kooples and Ted Baker, as well as the necessary raincoats and outerwear you’ll want to have to hand from brands like Barbour and Moncler. It’s the perfect place to pick-up some last minute supplies.

 

You can also indulge in a gorgeous lunch at one of several eateries before you throw yourself into a weekend of festival-style food, or bring some goodie bags away with you full of treats from The Rolling Donut, Starbucks or Saba.

And if you’re not on your way to The Picnic, Kildare Village is open from 9am until 8pm Saturday and Sunday during which time you can treat yourself (Friday is payday after all) to something special for your autumn/winter wardrobe. Parisian brands Sandro and Maje recently opened in the village, while old favourites DKNY, LK Bennett and Escada continue to offer amazing pieces at amazing prices.

There’s really no reason to be sad that it’s the last weekend in summer. There’s always such a friendly, positive vibe at Kildare Village as families gather to browse and lunch together. It even has kennels, so there’s no need to leave any member of the family at home.
