Maynooth Travel Guide


Maynooth itself is a serene university town named for a pre-Christian king of Ireland. The mighty Fitzgerald family inherited the local manor in the 12th century and founded the original Catholic college. A few minutes south of the tiny Georgian town is the hamlet of Celbridge, official address to Ireland's largest country house, Castletown.
