We've been to the Discovery Park many times with our children. Each time we discover new things like a different path to walk or the Fairy toadstool houses.

This discovery park in Castlecomer was the highlight of our trip to Kilkenny....It was just brilliant. The staff were so friendly and so eager to help you and for you to enjoy the experience. A hidden Gem that should be advertised so much more. We will be returning

This is an amazing place. Did the Tree Top walk - phew!! - followed by the Leap of Faith - very well named. Staff were great - friendly and encouraging but also reassuring that it was safe. Went on to walk one of the loops around the lakes with lovely scenery. Followed this on with good coffee and cake and... More

Had a lovely morning walking through the grounds and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Great place to meet up for a coffee or lunch and the tree top climbing looked so much fun!
