Our recent visit to this park encompassed us (2 over 60 yr olds), and three grandchildren. The forest walk was lovely, until we came across a fast food stand, which gave out so little food that we had to frequent the on sight restaurant, here,...More

Unfortunately, when we arrived, the activities were not open. We were really looking forward to having a go on the canoes, zip line and high ropes, archery and walks. It's a pity that the park isn't open all year round but I can understand why....More

I recently visited Castlecomer Discovery Park while in Kilkenny on a stag weelkend. Great fun on the high ropes course. The zipline is an absolute must! Reasonable price for both.

Our visit was very much geared towards entertaining our 2-and-a-half year old. It was perfect in this respect: elf and fairy village, playground and a long (tiring) walk were the ideal sleep-inducing combo. The food in the café was not great, so I would skip...More
