Athgarvan is a village in Co Kildare. It is located 4km southwest of Newbridge and lies on the R416 regional road just west of the River Liffey, which forms the eastern boundary of the village. The Curragh also forms its western boundary. The M7 motorway lies just beyond its northern boundary and separates it from Newbridge, which has now expanded as far south as the M7, with the result that the edges of the two settlements are now just one kilometre apart. While most of the major amenities are found in Newbridge, there is a small selection of shops and pubs in Athgarvan, as well as a church and national school.
