Fun-filled activities planned for mid-term break at Castlecomer Discovery Park

A great week of outdoor activities is planned for Castlecomer Discovery Park this mid-term break.
Kathy Purcell of Castlecomer Discovery Park said that there is an exciting programme lined up for the upcoming holidays.
“Whatever the weather the Discovery Park is a sure way to break cabin fever and ditch the digital screens for exercise, activity and adventure, no matter what the weather, giving them a mid-term break that’s worth talking about back at school. We have a great fun-filled week of activities planned,” she added.
Castlecomer Discovery Park is an 80-acre activity park featuring a wide range of exhilarating activities for all ages, from the fun and challenging tree-top walk high amongst the sycamore trees to archery and zip lines.
Reach new heights by climbing around ‘The Octagon’ a series of challenges in the form of nets, ropes and wooden bridges on an octagonal frame over two levels.
Another exciting option is taking a trip down Ireland’s longest Zip Line, at 300 metres long and 35 metres above the ground leaving people of all ages feeling exhilarated when they touch back on the solid ground.
Another popular activity at the park is archery which brings out the Robin Hood in all ages or try the string of walking and orienteering trails through the beautiful and magical woodlands accommodating varying levels of fitness. There is something for every age and every ability, and enough activity to create an entire action-packed day.
Teaching children to become more active and to discover and play for themselves is important for all ages, so Castlecomer also caters for younger children, with a playground, an elf and fairy village, and series of low-risk challenges where children balance and steer their way through a Junior Woodland Adventure Course, situated inside a natural environment.
