Yesterday the weather was ideal here in Robertstown for walking or cycling on the Grand Canal. I took a very short walk today from Lock 19 to Allenwood and back to the Selfcatering cottages in Robertstown. In all it just took 30 minutes. En route I met many like minded as myself making most of the gentle stretch in the evening. Taking time to stand at the 19th Lock and watch the boats moored my thoughts wander off to a time that I am not familiar with but a time that was talked about so much through my life, life plying the Grand Canal as a boatman as told by my grand Uncle Paddy “Waxer” Dunne. He was 12 when he joined his father on the Grand Canal boats and lived and breathed life on the Grand Canal all his life……a story I will continue again another day.
Last year we had so many guests staying here in Robertstown Holiday Village that had walked the Grand Canal Greenway. Some travelling from Shannon Harbour to Dublin, others walking from St Mullin on the Barrow Blueway to Lowtown. Again this year we have bookings already for walkers and cyclists availing of this great amenity.
As we are situated in Irelands Ancient East and on Dublins Doorstep, the holiday homes in Robertstown near Naas are ideal for seeing over 5000 years of heritage while also the excitement of our capital city.
If it is shopping you want then Kildare Village, Newbridge Silverware and the Whitewater are located 10 miles away from our self catering cottages in Newbridge and Kildare towns.
So a Springtime creeps upon us and we look forward to the longer days, bright evenings and fun outdoors a stay in Robertstown Holiday Village Self catering cottages is the place to be.
