Summer is Here! –Castlecomer Discovery Park launches daily opening of all its activities



It’s summer, time to enjoy sunshine and a break from routine. It is also a time to find ways of keeping kids happy as they while away their holidays.  Take the chance to go “screen free” and get into the great outdoors! 
Activities at Castlecomer Discovery Park are now open daily from 11.00 am. There is adventure to be had as you walk through the treetops, with views of the River Deane on the parks famous tree top walk.  For the more adventurous there Ireland’s longest over water zip line (300 meters), or try the Octagon, our high ropes challenge course. 

Magic is in the air at the ELF village, one of the most popular places at Castlecomer Discovery Park. This year the park has launched its woodland café “The Canopy Café” which means parents can enjoy some delicious coffee and sandwiches while kids get climbing and balancing on the junior woodland course. 

Visitors will also be able to try their hand at archery, the parks newest activity. Nestled in the stunning woodlands of the park, your little ones and not so little ones can imagine they are Robin Hood.  As well as being lots of fun there is the physical and mental benefits, it builds upper body strength, improves mental focus and coordination.  
“We are looking forward to a really exciting summer season, all our instructors are trained and ready to help visitors take the leap off our zip line, manoeuvre the high ropes challenges on the Octagon and harness up for the tree top walk and climbing wall. For the less adventurous there is canoeing or pedal boating on our stunning lakes” Jo McCarthy Activity Manager
