Create an itinerary including Jerpoint Park
Get a breath of fresh air at Jerpoint Park, a historical spot filled with wildlife and impressive old trees. Walk among the oaks, chestnuts, limes, and beeches, and keep an eye out for birds. If you are feeling adventurous, take advantage of the park's "tracker packs," which include binoculars, a compass, and a magnifying glass. Watch a sheepdog demonstration and observe how the dog and its owner communicate and work together to herd sheep. This site also makes a perfect fishing spot--ask about the wild salmon and brown trout fishing. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Kilkenny trip simple and quick.

  • A lovely stay here very quaint and full of history. We enjoyed our comfy room and a very nice hearty breakfast next morning. Followed by a free tour full of great information thanks to Joe and his lovely dog.
  • Jerpoint park is a delightful place with amazing history. The grounds are beautiful and Joe was a wealth of information as well as a good story teller. We had a great time with him and would highly recommend coming here when you’re in the area
