Aillwee Cave, Ireland's Premiere Showcave - formed when the streams sinking underground on the Aillwee mountain started dissolving channels through the lines of weakness in the limestone. Aillwee Cave is one of the most ancient caves in the Burren and perhaps in Ireland.
Expert guides will accompany and inform you during your leisurely tour through the beautiful caverns, over bridged chasms, under weird formations and alongside the thunderous waterfall. On the same grounds as the Aillwee Cave is The Burren Birds of Prey, Falcons, Hawks, Vulture and Owls from all over the globe reside.
Doolin Cave is home to the Great Stalactite. At 7.3 metres (23feet) it is the longest free-hanging stalactite in the Northern Hemisphere. The Great Stalactite, suspended from the ceiling like a chandelier, is truly astounding. Visitors can hardly believe that it was formed from a single drop of water over thousands of years. Extend the adventure from underground to over ground following a charming Farmland Nature Trail that takes a looped walk around the cave setting. The nature trail is home to indigenous species of flora along with rare and miniature breeds of animals. Visitors can enjoy delicious home-cooked foods and home-baked cakes in the comfortable surroundings of Doolin Cave Cafe. Doolin Cave pottery, hand-made using glacial clay found deep within Doolin Cave, is available in the gift-shop.
