Trip Planner: Ireland / Province of Leinster / County Kilkenny / Kilkenny / Thomastown / Jerpoint Park
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.

Jerpoint Park reviews
Very interesting visit. Joe is a very knowledgeable and interesting man. It is a unique trip and fascinating to learn of a lost town that once thrived. Even the tall tales were worth hearing!!

This place is reverently amazing. Hearing the history from the property owners was a gift. Their respectful tending to history is such a special vocation. But truly… the sheep herding demonstration won our hearts! What an incredible stop from beginning to end!
A lovely stay here very quaint and full of history. We enjoyed our comfy room and a very nice hearty breakfast next morning. Followed by a free tour full of great information thanks to Joe and his lovely dog.
