Jerpoint Park, Thomastown

4.7
Get a breath of fresh air at Jerpoint Park, a historical spot filled with wildlife and impressive old trees. Walk among the oaks, chestnuts, limes, and beeches, and keep an eye out for birds. If you are feeling adventurous, take advantage of the park's "tracker packs," which include binoculars, a compass, and a magnifying glass. Watch a sheepdog demonstration and observe how the dog and its owner communicate and work together to herd sheep. This site also makes a perfect fishing spot--ask about the wild salmon and brown trout fishing. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Kilkenny trip simple and quick.

  • Joe is an amazing story teller and the guided tour makes the ruins come alive. The sheepdog demonstration is also a must see. Amazing cooperation between him and his dog.
  • So lovely! Mr. O'Connell told us everything about the lost town and the sheep dog demonstration was worth seeing! You shouldn't miss that when you're visiting Kilkenny!
