The Vikings are Back for 2018! This year the Medieval Festival will bring you the medieval experience we've become used to every summer in Kildare Town. From birds of prey to archery, puppet shows, the medieval food and craft village and of course, music and games of old, the day promises to be loads of fun weather you're 3 or 103! Activities on the day include a falconry display, many Medieval games, craft area, heritage craft demo’s like the Farriery display, bog Oak carving, Calligraphy, Willow weaving and wool spinning. For the adventurous why not come along in Medieval Costume?! Try your hand at tag archery by Red Hills Adventure, climb Ireland’s tallest accessible round tower or join the Deise Reenactors in the KideVike Games and learn to battle like a Viking.
