We were on Ireland tour and to make it a different day than watching castle and landscapes we decided to stop at the discovery park and it was the best decision ever.

Great spot for fun activites for both young and old - We only done the tree top walk, leap of faith and climbing wall but really enjoyed. Will be back again to explore more. Friendly people in the small craft shops Plenty of food and drinks available for that needed energy boost. Great fun day out :)

Enjoyed, what was but didn't seem a long day here. Plenty to do great for picnics, walks fishing boating and the adventure park. Parking is a bit manic but the service and the people make up for it. Well worth a visit.

A very interesting presentation of the geology of coal. The mining and the running of the mines with videos of miners and relations of those killed telling their stories of this most dangerous and health hazard job.
