Arkle Bar & Restaurant

We are delighted to announce we have finished our refurbishment of our new Arkle Bar. The name comes from the famous Irish racehorse Arkle and symbolises all of the great racecourses Kildare has to offer. It’s everything you’d expect from an Irish bar and more – a warm welcome, a good pint and a great atmosphere. Arkle Bar is also a great place to enjoy some delicious bar food or a tasty snack.
