Kildare Maze is Leinster’s largest hedge maze located just out in Prosperous, North Kildare. The monstrous hedge maze is 6 foot high, covering approximately 1.5 acres of land with over 1.5 kilometres of paths for people to lose their way in. The Hedge Maze is fun for all the family from young little Toddlers to Grandparents leading the way. For those smart enough to find their way to the centre of the maze, they are awarded with the enjoyment of panoramic views of the countryside from the Viewing Tower, as well as seeing other family members still rambling around the maze.
Having seen how popular the Hedge Maze is, they went on to develop The Wooden Maze. Aimed towards younger children, this all-weather Maze makes for just as challenging experience for those brave enough to enter. Having found your way out of all mazes, play a game of 9-hole crazy golf before testing your balance on the adventure trail without making a mistake.
