As the weather warms up and the days get longer, it’s a great time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Unfortunately, the Irish weather doesn’t always cooperate with our plans. Sun, rain or hail, Kildare is an excellent place to visit. We have an abundance of indoor activities to enjoy on a rainy day whether you’re visiting with family, friends or as a couple. Book your stay in our luxurious, 4-star hotel in Kildare and enjoy a relaxing stay. Enjoy our best available rates, book a table in our restaurant or a treatment in Osprey Spa on our website.
Enjoy a Swim
Kildare is a landlocked county so swimming in the sea nearby isn’t an option. Why would you brave the cold of the Irish sea, when you could enjoy a swim in the leisure centre of Osprey Hotel? Our 20-metre swimming pool is ideal for swimming laps, relaxing with the family, or winding down after a long day at work. The pool is heated to a comfortable temperature help you to relax and is ideal for children and babies. Relax in our sauna and steam room post-swim to unwind before you return to your comfortable bedroom for some room service or a drink from the bar.
