Kilcullen is a pleasant old market town where you can while away a calm afternoon on the banks of the River Liffey. The town is sometimes referred to as the gateway to Wicklow due to its proximity to the county and is part of the Gordon Bennett Classic Car Run each year as it was on the original route in 1903.  The Kilcullen Historical Society display interesting artefacts in the Kilcullen Heritage Centre which also houses a 114 seat theatre.
