Had a fantastic time in the park with a 4,7&9 year old. Reception staff were brilliant and helped us work out what to do. Spent 3 hours in the park, great day out and really good value.

Very good presentation of the contributions to the Irish coal mining industry made by men of Castlecomer and the surrounding area. Very child friendly and well worth a 2 hour visit.
