Welcome to Castlecomer Discovery Park

Set in a stunning 80 acre woodland, Castlecomer Discovery Park boasts an exciting range of recreational and educational activities. This ‘young’ park opened in 2007 and comprises scenic walking trails, lakes, boating, fishing, high-ropes adventure activities, a fascinating multi-media coal mining museum, orienteering trails, schools education programme, design craft workshops, Elf & Fairy village and an award winning café. There’s a whole day of fantastic activities to be experienced for visitors of all ages so come see for yourself!


Please note: The outdoor activities will reopen in Spring. The Tree-Top Adventure Walk, Climbing Wall, Leap of Faith and Junior Woodland Adventure Course will reopen in time for February midterm break (weather-permitting, call now to pre-book). The other activities will reopen later in Spring including boating and our NEW 300m+ Zip Line and High Ropes Course.

Reception, Coal-Mining Exhibition, Woodland trails, Orienteering and Jarrow Café open daily. Design craft workshops all have individual opening hours – contact individual makers for details. 

1st hour parking is FREE; €3 for up to 3 hours; €4 for all day parking; €45 for an Annual Pass.

Dogs are welcome in the park but they must be kept on a leash at all times and we would ask owners to kindly clean up after them.

The level of professionalism was superb and I would recommend that anyone who has a fear of heights or a lack of self-belief try it out. Or if, like me, you think you’re Superman, give it a go – when you freeze mid-air and need a daughter to talk you through it, your ego will come back to earth with a bang.” The Tree Top Walk Adventures – (Irish Times, August 10, 2013)
