Castlecomer Discovery Park

This large parkland & adventure centre offers something for all the family – and for adult groups – whether you are looking for adventure & activity or a just a peaceful walk, a nice lunch & a look at some local crafts.

The discovery park has developed considerably over the past couple of years, and now boasts the longest overwater zipline in Ireland (for ages 12 and over), as well as a challenging treetop walkway for ages 8 and up, and a smaller version for little kids (which is about a foot off the ground, but great sport for the under 5s).

There is also an archery range, a boating lake (where you can hire a pedal or paddle boat by the half hour), a play park, and an ornate elf & fairy village, which delights smaller children.

The café, restaurant and craft shops are also worth a look, and there is also a Visitor Centre & Museum documenting the coal mining history of the area.
