Sale Agreed


Kildare Town Centre comprises a modern mixed use development located in the centre of Kildare town just 75 metres west of the Market Square. The property is situated on the south side of Claregate Street, at its junction with Bangup Lane. Kildare town would be considered a commuter town of Dublin and has a population of 9,859 (Census 2016) up 5.7% on the previous census figures. The town benefits from direct access onto the M7 motorway and to railway services into Dublin Heuston providing commute times as quick as 35mins. In recent years, the amenities of the town have improved considerably with the arrival of Kildare Village in 2007 which has continued to improve with the opening of its recent extension. Kildare Village provides an important source of direct and indirect employment in the immediate area. Plans for Phase 3 were announced earlier this year which would bring up to 500 new jobs if developed.
