Kilkea National School (formally Scoil Náisiúnta Cill Cae) is a three-classroom school nestled in the beautiful south Kildare countryside. Originally founded in 1863 in the old schoolhouse, the children moved up the road to a new two-classroom school in 1950. The completion of works, including an extension, in June 2009 saw the school building expand to a 3-classroom building with GP Hall.

Nearby Kilkea Castle was the seat of the Fitzgerald clan - Earls of Kildare and Dukes of Leinster - for over 700 years.
