These adventures are safe. We were in highly trained hands, and meticulously kitted out in hoists and ropes and hard hats. The only danger was in my imagination

“What A Gem”

Reviewed 5 August 2014

There is so much to do at Castlecomer Discovery Park that it’s fair to say you may need to make multiple trips to this wonderful setting in order to soak up everything that it has to offer. Originally opened as the location for a Museum to the Castlecomer Coalmine which produced Coal up until 1969, the Park included a Craft Yard & Cáfe. They have subsequently added a Fishing Lake, Tree-Top Adventure Course, Playground, Pedal-Boats, a viewing area with a selection of unusual Animals and the most idyllic Woodland Walks. This venue is not just a gem from a Kilkenny perspective, but is possibly one of the nicest places in the Country with something to appeal to all ages. The Playground & Woodland Walks are free, while there are charges for the other activities.

“Awesome fun filled day”

Reviewed 23 July 2014

We were on Ireland tour and to make it a different day than watching castle and landscapes we decided to stop at the discovery park and it was the best decision ever. We all enjoyed the tree top adventure, the walk in the park. There is so much to do for all age groups, tree top adventure, children’s park, boating, trail hike etc. This place has a cafeteria and clean toilets as well which is very important when travelling with kids 🙂

The facilities are excellent and staff very friendly and courteous. this was our second visit and it did not fail to entertain. Well worth an afternoon with the family. There is plenty of parking and the café and craft shops proved a good attraction. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to any adventurous family visiting Kilkenny.”
