Doolin Cave

Opening times for July

Tour are available daily from 10am – 6pm (last tour of the day leaves 5pm)

Discover the power of ONE at Doolin Cave and see for yourself how a single continuous drop of water formed the largest stalactite in Europe, the only one of its kind in Ireland, and a force of nature that will take your breath away.  

Prepare for a true underground experience. Deep in the heart of the earth, 200 feet down, Doolin Cave is a fantasy-like world created from water, time and the hand of nature. Take a journey down through an intricate system of passages and pathways that will lead you into the majestic cathedral-like dome of the cave and the awe-inspiring wonder that is the Great Stalactite. 7.3 metres long and weighing around 10 tonnes, this vast structure reaches down from the roof of the Cave, catching the light, reflecting colours and detail like a massive, ornate glass chandelier. It is a sight like no other and one that will stay with you forever.
