“Worth Visiting”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Similiar to the outlet malls in the US but smaller. I was interested in the ASICS and the north face stores.

I saved €45 on a pair of last seasons ASICS i was going to buy at full price and €100 on a North Face jacket.

Certainly worth a visit.

“Great Shopping venue”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Worth a stop to visit the Outlet if you are on the Motorway. Great bargains in Ralph Lauren shop and in Karen Millen. Always busy on a weekend (especially Sunday), during the week great for a stroll around as it is all outdoor. Nice Italian Restaurant and Starbucks if you need to take a breather. Recommend the Designers Guild for homewares, duvet covers etc. Good parking if you are there early.

“Wouldn't exactly class it as a must-see attraction.”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Definitely not something to do if you're visiting Ireland. It is not really an "outlet" you would find in the rest of Europe or the States. We went twice in one month, the only times we had been, and nothing had changed. Prices and stock were the same. Prices aren't exactly low, some shops just had the same prices as in their normal shops.

“Poor poor poor, just go if your passing.”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

I find this type of shopping experience so poor. There are no fantastic 70% off high street prices. You could get the same pricing now on Grafton street. The only store in my mind that is good value is the RL shop, this is only value for money because there isn't a RL shop on its own in Ireland to compare against. All the other shops are a waste of time and the one that's packed is Starbucks, which says it all really!! Don't go there if your just heading there for shopping go there if your passing or visiting someone In Kildare or surrounding areas.
