Five great things to do in Kilkenny this Autumn

Don’t let the dark evenings and colder days dampen your mood. Check out the huge array of events and activities happening in Kilkenny throughout the Autumn months.

Savour Kilkenny Food Festival

Savour Kilkenny returns to the medieval city for four days of foodie heaven over the Halloween Bank Holiday Weekend, 25th – 29th October 2018! Get into the spirit as we enter the 12th year of culinary delights, interactive demos and masterclasses with award-winning chefs, quirky dining events, beer and wine tasting, live entertainment, and of course a bustling market!

Castlecomer Discovery Park – The Zip of Terror

The Zip of Terror is back! Once more we are asking ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH?

Here in the forest dark and deep, poltergeists and puca awake from their sleep. Are you brave enough to zip through the night sky before wandering through a forest full of frights?

Who knows what lurks in the forest? Once you arrive here, board the Halloween train, which will take you to the zipline. It’s pretty dark, and our experienced team of undertakers are ready to harness you up before you jump into the dark abyss. Will you make it to the end? If you do, you will then have to take the terrifying journey through the haunted forest, you never know what might pop up.

This event takes about 90 minutes depending on how fast you need to run!

It is for 12+ (all under 16’s must be accompanied by a parent).

Running from 7.30 p.m. 26 – 29 October & 31st October 2018.

Book the Halloween Train at www.discoverypark.ie.
