Jerpoint Park is privileged to host a Monument of notable importance: The Lost Town of Newtown Jerpoint. It was founded by either Earl Marshall or Griffin Fitzwilliam in 12th century, just west of the Cistercian Abbey. Daily guided heritage tours of the footprints of the 12th Century Medieval Town during the season plus The Tomb Effigy of St. Nicholas.
Sheep Dog Demonstrations also take place at Jerpoint Park during the season, where man and dog work together as one herding.
Jerpoint Park is not opening up on 26th April 2021 for Guided Heritage Tours & Sheep Dog Demonstrations. Please stay safe - keep your distance, & wear a face mask.
