This town in County Kildare does offer tourists plenty of things to see and do. Discount hotels in Kildare, Ireland, are found in the country's 55th largest population center. Considered a regional center, Kildare has been settled for centuries.Visitors who select budget hotels in Kildare, Ireland, will find this community sits on the site of an ancient shrine to the Celtic goddess Brigid. The city today, however, more readily shows off its Christian roots. Kildare Cathedral is a major attraction here with its castle-like tower and beautifully embellished façade. The city also is the official home of the Irish National Stud, which is a thoroughbred horse facility owned by the government. The Japanese Gardens, located on the grounds of the Irish National Stud, are also worth a stop. This unusual attraction for Ireland was founded in the early 1900s. The garden's layout is meant to symbolize the life of man. Other attractions here include St. Fiachra's Garden, the Horse Museum and the Round Tower.
