Set in the former grounds of the Wandesforde Estate, Castlecomer Discovery Park is located just under 20km from the hotel. It comprises 80 acres of stunning natural woodland and lakes and began as a community project to rejuvenate the town of Castlecomer following the closure of the coal mines in 1969. This relatively ‘young’ park opened to the public in 2007 with the launch of the Coal Mining Exhibition, Visitor Centre and Design Craft studios which are located in the former stable yard. Recently launched attractions include a Tree Top Adventure Walk, a ‘Leap of Faith’ experience and a Climbing Wall. Entry to the park is free with a nominal charge of €2 for all day car parking.
Discover your inner climber by completing the new Tree Top Adventure Walk. Walking high above the tree tops, ten metres above the ground, this 140 metre long course gives a birds eye view of the park to those brave enough to venture up! Perfect for a family adventure, team building, or corporate groups we encourage you to take the path in the sky! Cost: €12.50 per person with a 10% discount for a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids). Bundle deals also available in conjunction with other Discovery Park activities. Note: Minimum height and age restrictions apply. Age 7+
February mid-term break opening hours: 12 – 4pm daily Sat 15th – Sun 22nd
