Zipline and high rope course at Castlecomer Discovery Park in County Kilkenny is a unique attraction where vistors as young as seven can experience a 140 metres walk through the beautiful riverside trees at Discovery Park.
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.
