Doolin Cave - Doolin, Co. Clare, Ireland

Doolin Cave one of Europe\’s most compelling cave attractions. The Great Stalactite it is your only opportunity to see such a large free hanging stalactite anywhere in the world.

From the moment you descend over 80ft into the first tunnel, with your guide, you will enter a world carved by water. Donning your hard hat, you will follow the rough-hewn route of the early explorers who first discovered the cave.

When you enter the stunning cathedral-like dome that houses the huge stalactite you will be briefly plunged into a world of primitive darkness. Then in a flash you will be awed as the subtly-lit stalactite appears before you. Far below a magical stream carries the water that carved the primeval world around you to the outside world.
