‘Legends of Kildare’ experience – “ brings the art of Irish storytelling to a whole new dimension” and “captures the romance heroism and tragedies of Kildare’s ancient past that echo in the ruins of our abbeys and cathedrals”Mayor Suzanne Doyle
“…a truly magical and unique experience…. Historic Kildare ….springs to life before your eyes and all around you growing in size and stature through the centuries. It’s difficult not to feel disappointed when the credits roll – I could have easily have spent the entire afternoon exploring that world…”
“After watching this, I felt so proud to be from Kildare. It deepened my knowledge of the history of the town and the important role women played in the story of Kildare. It is a fantastic medium to gain an understanding of our history. Well done."
“Having grown up in Kildare I found the VR tour educational. There were many aspects about the history of Kildare that were unknown to me. I now have a greater appreciation of the importance of the town in Irish history. I recommend the tour to all. Congrats to Tom and all for making this happen.”
