Welcome to Jerpoint Park, where we strive to immerse you in a unique experience of heritage and culture in a very special destination Thomastown in Kilkenny , south east of Ireland. Unearth the history of Jerpoint Park with a guided tour of the footprints of a deserted 12th century medieval town. When it was founded near a crossing point on the River Nore near the Cistercian Jerpoint Abbey. The site also contains the Tomb Effigy of St. Nicholas (Bishop of Myra) plus the Church of St. Nicholas. "One of Irelands's best examples of a deserted 12th century medieval town" a quote from The Heritage Council of Ireland.Savour the delicious homemade scones baked daily during the summer months in our Tea Rooms. Angling on the River Nore for wild salmon & wild brown trout from March - September (ghillie, rods & bait available for hire). Sheep dog demonstrations with geese or sheep is a wonderful event to see.Check website for details of opening hours and guided heritage tour times.Looking forward to welcoming you to Jerpoint.Joe & Maeve

Wonderfully informative and entertaining tour of the grounds from Joe. I could have listened to his stories all day! The detail that he provided about the carvings in the headstones in the graveyard was fascinating. I’ll never look at a headstone the same way again!...More

I went with some friends during Heritage Week and we got an excellent guided tour with John. He is a superb story teller and knows his history. The site is amazing.

If I recall correctly, the "donation" was 10 euros for each adult (I'm unsure about children), payable in cash.
