Castlecomer Discovery Park

I’ve explored a lost town in Kilkenny. I shot one of my favourite Irish photos there. I’ve eaten Michelin-star meals in two different restaurants, and walked into the earth to find one of Ireland’s darkest places. Each time, I could have been home in time for tea.

That’s the beauty of this place. You could fit the population into Croke Park, with a few thousand left over, but they still serve one of the richest taster plates of heritage, food and outdoors activities Ireland has to offer.
