The team here are always particularly excited for the 17th March to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day due to Killashee’s strong ties to St. Patrick. Killashee derives it’s name from St. Auxillius who is said to be the nephew of St. Patrick. It is widely debated in Co. Kildare whether it was St. Patrick himself or his nephew St. Auxillius who founded the church at Killashee. Sadly the church closed in 1965, and all that remains are the ruins and the Holy Well which is dedicated to St. Patrick. Ask at our reception for a map of our grounds and take a true exploration into Ireland’s history*.
