Trip Planner: Europe / 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. Klarna Trips's itinerary builder makes planning a Kilkenny trip simple and quick.
Jerpoint Park reviews
Very friendly folks. Even though it was raining and cold, Maeve was very animated and energetic describing the history of the lost city of Newtown Jerpoint.

We had a great time on a tour here during the winter. Maeve, our tour guide and site owner, was so engaging and knowledgeable. The history on the site is interesting, with much as yet undiscovered.

We were a group of Americans traveling in Ireland. I had found this gem on TripAdvisor. Maeve was wonderful - so informative and truly made us feel like each of our questions were important. This...

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.
Jerpoint Park easily became a group favourite on our Ireland trip! Maeve was quick to reply about bookings and we got in for a private tour of the medieval town as well as a sheepdog demonstration, all very affordable at €15/person. It was just our group when we got there but a tour bus showed up as we were leaving, so call ahead of time to really get that private experience. I was pleasantly surprised at how elaborate the tour was; covering the settlement history of the area, archaeological finds, architectural design of the ruins, and not to mention some notable names in the graveyard - including St. Nicholas (yes, Santa!) The owner, Joe, is kind, knowledgeable and entertaining. His tour was especially enjoyable as his passion for this unique history shows. If you’re looking to explore remnants of Ireland’s past in the beautiful countryside while hearing stories from a local, seriously don’t miss visiting Jerpoint Park. The sheepdog was also very cute haha ❤️
What an amazing surprise this was for us. We pulled up just expecting a little laugh at the site of St Nick but got such an interesting background and view of the lost town of Jerpoint. Maeve was incredible to listen to and cares so much for this historical site she and her family have come across. This was one of the highlights of our trip.
Amazing place! The owners are so, so friendly and always ready to help and answer questions. Also Chip is such a good boy! Please pet him for me! ❤️
This was a great stop. Nice relaxing tour with Joe. Learned a lot about the lost city of Jerpoint. If you're in the area I definitely recommend a stop here.
