The Old Yard, Kildare

Garterfarm, Castledermot, Co. Kildare

If you're looking for somewhere special to spend your Saturday I've got you covered. My friend suggested The Old Yard for a catch up and some cake, I hadn't been before and I don't know how that's possible because it is truly a gem. You'll find this peaceful old farmyard on a quiet road in South Kildare, just outside Castledermot. Settle down at a table inside or out and get comfy. We picked inside which was lovely and cosy and set about getting our sugar overload. First up was a helping of homemade lemonade and roulade. The delicious cakes are made by Hallahoise House Bakery and there's plenty to choose from. The Old Yard is so relaxing, there's no rush and everyone is incredibly friendly. We sat and gossiped until all the cake was gone, so we ordered hot chocolates and gossiped some more. Once we had our sugar high it was time to hunt around the antiques housed in the converted sheds. There is an eclectic mix of vintage, antique and rustic finds, it's the ultimate interior design inspiration. You'll also find gorgeous floral displays from bespoke wedding florist Fleur Weddings, that left me dreaming of a boho wedding. The Old Yard is open Thurs-Sat: 10am-6pm for May-September. Make sure to drop by before it's closed for a little piece of escapism, a helping of cake and plenty of design inspiration.

What's your favorite Saturday spot?
