I live literally down the road from this pretty little park and find it lovely to go and sit in on my break at work. The Discovery park really is the highlight of Castecomer. A family run business that has grown over the past few years with an increase of attractions for young and old. The park is very well... More

We visited last week and had a long walk around the lovely grounds and lakes. Plenty of picnic tables for the finer months. There seem to be activities for the summer months such as boating . Lovely playground. We stumbled across elf village which entranced my 4 year old daughter . We didn't see it mentioned on the map. There... More

walks around lake are great, and a choice routes depending on what you want. All sorts of surprises for children on the walks including reindeer! Cafe and shops for browsing + picnic areas + zip wire - something for everyone

Love this park. Beautiful in the frost and snow, even better in summer. The walk around the park is well laid out and us perfect for a stroll with children. The Christmas experience here is the best I've been to.

Great facility with well kept and well marked routes. Lovely café there for afterwards. We went for the longer walk which winds around forestry and lakes.

Situated on the outskirts of Castlecomer with plenty of parking space this really is an excellent place to spend the best part of a day. First we visited the exhibition centre and learnt a lot about the local history and in particular the mining details of the area through an excellent audio / visual and interactive programme. We were most... More
