The Kildare Maze, Prosperous, Naas, Co. Kildare
A place I’m looking forward to returning to for a family day out before the summer is out is The Kildare Maze. Open seven days a week in June, July, August and every weekend in September, The Kildare Maze is perfect for children of all ages.
There’s ample car parking at the maze, and when you purchase your ticket all the activities and ‘things to do’ on site are included in the price (Adults €8, Children €6, Under 2 yrs old – Free)
There’s also a shop at the entrance where you purchase your entrance ticket. Here you can buy snacks and beverages. We found the staff friendly and helpful, explaining our tickets and the maze to us.
Things to do at The Kildare Maze include the Hedge Maze with Viewing Tower, the Wooden Maze, Crazy Golf, an Assault Course, a Play Area with Zip Wire and Sandpit, a Picnic Area and a Pets Corner.
To give you an idea of what to expect and hopefully show you why it makes for a perfect open air family day out, I’ve selected some of my favourite photo’s from my experience there.
The Hedge Maze
I really wasn’t aware of the size of this fantastic looking maze, nor its twists and turns until we were in the middle trying to find our way to the Viewing Tower. Bumping into other visitors who had made wrong turns. Thinking we were smart following the road most trodden only to be faced with a ‘dead end’. Walking back along the way we had walked once before … or was it twice?
We did find our way to the ‘sacred’ Viewing Tower in the end. The view was fab but it was the giggles and laughter along the way that really made it special.
