While I’ve not managed to get around to all the above myself, most come well recommended. The best advise would be to check out the various websites for the sites and locations and then have a look at their reviews on Trip Advisor also. I hope you have a great time exploring Castlecomer and the surrounding area. Its a lovely spot. Let me know how you get on and if you discover any other activities in Castlecomer or the area that you think are worth recommending. And if you are in Kilkenny City, drop by and say hello. I’ll be on the boat trips. Enjoy! Cliff
