  • Great place for kids. You only get 15 mins per activity. They give you longer if no crowds around. Very peaceful.
  • One of the greatest places in ireland for a walk or activity, set as you enter into Castlecomer, the Discovery park as in its name has lots for people to discover from the walks and trails to the tree walking or ziplining experience oldest person to do it was a gent aged 87 done it twice in a day in a suit! Peddle boats also Plus special events during the summer, including a coal mining tour to take back to what the park was 1st used for, drop in you'll become a regular straight away,
