A great amenity in Maynooth. Acres of parkland, Gothic Architecture and the fantastic chapel. Have lunch in Pugin Hall.... Harry Potteresque

The Old campus of Maynooth University is a beautiful place to meander. Parking is available on campus for a charge or externally on the street. Dogs are permitted on leads and there are some well laid out walking paths through the playing fields.

We love walking through the College and visiting the Seminary. It is a beautifully sacred place that lives up to the Saint Patrick name:)

Nice place to go for a walk. In auttumm the color of the trees are so beautiful, even if there are fences, because when I was here, They were repearing the building.

The buildings and trees in the college are very beautiful. The church there is the oldest still functional church in Ireland and is quite the sight. It has lovely walk ways and huge trees.

Although there were plenty of students wandering about and the university was still functioning before summer break, there was nothing to see at St. Patricks since even the church was shut up. Ask before you go or it is a wasted trip just to see...More

Walking into the south campus is to be presented with a marvellous vista of the earlier buildings that are home to the National Seminary and Pontifical University. We visited on a gloriously sunny day and the cloudless blue sky was the perfect backdrop for the...More
