Cásca sa Choill,
our Easter family celebration!

Time to celebrate! The gorgeous snowdrops are peeking up and the evenings are getting
nice and long. Castlecomer Discovery Park is open for the 2018 season each weekend from
the 17 th March, but we have two full weeks of active fun from the 24 th March to the 8 th of
April to celebrate the arrival of Spring and Easter holidays!

The ever popular Easter Woodland Hunt is back again, our Easter themed woodland trail
takes families around our 80 acres of woodlands and lakes, bringing you through the
magical elf and fairy village as you hunt for clues. Suitable for children up to 10, this is the
perfect way to get a day of fresh air and screen free fun. Of course there is a reward for all
your hard detective work, once you have gathered all the clues make your way back to the
visitor centre to collect your goodies. The trail is available every day for the Easter holidays
and is €10 per family.

Join us on Saturday March 31 st for Cásca sa Choill as we celebrate craft and the natural
world in our quirky event domes located at the Elf and Fairy Village.
Get to meet the makers
as we have wood turners, potters, knitters and jewellery makers amongst those that will give
demonstrations of their crafts. They will be joined by a number of groups that promote
biodiversity and embrace the natural world such as the Mid Kilkenny Bee Keepers
Association. Did you know that eating honey can help you smarter! Find out this and much
more by join us for this free family friendly event, taking place between 12.00 – 16.00 on
Easter Saturday.

For those looking for an adrenaline rush, get up in the clouds and get a birds eye view of the
world with our Tree Top Walk course nestled in the Sycamore tree tops! This stunning tree
top walk is 140 metre long and gives views around the 70 acre natural woodland park. For
those over 12 years of age there is Ireland’s longest zip line, which is 300 metres long and
over 35 metres over ground
at its highest point. Zoom down the zip after trying your skills on
our high-ropes course called the Octagon. Our younger climbers love the Junior Woodland
Adventure Course
, which see children navigate a number of obstacles that promote physical
and mental agility.

We have got something for everyone, with 6km of walking trails, woodland orienteering trails,
pedal boats, canoes, archery, climbing wall
or our fascinating interactive coal mining
exhibition telling the story of the local mining heritage. You can also relax over a hearty meal
or tasty snack at our “Canopy Café” under the trees at the elf village. Then take a walk
around the craft yard, where you can meet the craft makers and find a novel gift.
