Kildavin (Irish: Cill Damháin) is a small village in County Carlow, Ireland. Situated on at the junction of the N80 National secondary road and the R724 regional road, it lies 5 km north of Bunclody, County Wexford at the northern end of the Blackstairs Mountains.

Fauna[edit]

The river Slaney at Kildavin is one of the best places in Ireland in winter to see the rare goosander.[citation needed] Flocks of up to 30 have been seen here.[citation needed] It is not yet clear whether they are breeding locally, or are part of the recently established colony in County Wicklow.[original research?] The yellowhammer, an increasingly rare songbird in Ireland, is locally common. Ireland's newest breeding bird, the great spotted woodpecker, has been seen here several times recently.[when?]
