Castlecomer Discovery Park is home to the longest over-water zipline in Ireland! It is 300 metres long and 35 metres over ground at its highest point. Visitors zip over our stunning woodland, two lakes and 17th century hand-restored bridge.

Zipline and high rope course: The exhilarating zipline is accompanied by the Octagon High Ropes Course. Set on an octagonal frame over two levels, this presents a series of challenges in the form of nets, ropes, wooden bridges etc. The Octagon is more challenging than the existing Tree-Top Adventure Walk Course. It is particularly suited to groups and for team-building exercises. Contact us to make a large group booking - is a must.

Please note: Restrictions apply. Zipline and Octagon High Ropes Course participants must be age 12+, minimum height 1.3m and maximum 120kg weight. You should arrive in Visitor Centre at least 30 minutes before allocated time to register. The start of the course is approx. 15 min. walk from the Visitor Centre.

New Junior Woodland Adventure:
The exciting new Junior Woodland Adventure Course was specially designed to encourage small children become more active and adventurous in a woodland environment. Made of natural materials, traditional rope and Larch wood, it’s a series of low-risk challenges where children balance and steer their way through the course. It’s situated 2 feet from the mulch covered surface, suitable for 3-8 year olds, and helmets are provided.

See our website for more details on opening times and rates: http://www.discoverypark.ie/contact/
