Kildare is home to two major department stores: Kildare Town Center and Wilton's. Both were constructed in the 1980s and 1990s and both are owned by the Irish retail giant, Dunnes Stores. They are located about 5 minutes' drive from the town center on either side of the N4 road.
As far as I know, Kildare town is a wonderful location to live. You have excellent access to the railway station and buses. Tesco, Aldi, Lidl, and Kildare Village are all right on your doorstep. There are also a lot of great eateries. If you're looking for something specific, there's probably a good chance that it can be found somewhere in Ireland.
The people in Kildare town are very friendly. Everyone seems happy-go-lucky. There's a good selection of shops to choose from; otherwise, you can always go online if you need something.
Kildare has two universities: Maynooth University and Carlow College. There are also several other colleges and schools throughout the county.
In conclusion, I would say that Kildare is a fantastic place to live in. It's convenient, there's plenty to do, and the people are nice.
