Aillwee Cave, County Clare
In the heart of the Burren in County Clare, perched high on its Burren terraced mountain side with spectacular views of Galway Bay lies Ireland's premier showcave - an experience, which should be part of everyone’s visit to the Burren. Aillwee Cave welcomes you to its underground surprises, a place of wonder, beauty and discovery.
Expert guides will accompany you on a 30 minute stroll through the beautiful caverns, over bridged chasms, under weird formations and alongside the thunderous waterfall. Marvel at the frozen waterfall and explore the hibernation chambers of long-extinct brown bears. Explore Europe's largest rock garden - follow the trail up Aillwee Mountain and discover the ecological wealth and diversity that the Burren has to offer.
Take a walk through the Hazel Wood, a working wood where the hazel trees are managed by the "Coppicing" technique. At the Farm Shop, watch the award winning Burren Gold Cheese being made and sample some homemade fudge at the Farm kitchen.
The Burren Birds of Prey and Educational Centre is home to one of the largest and most varied collections of Birds of Prey in the country. Open-fronted aviaries, with daily flying displays, will offer you an opportunity to see the magnificent birds up close and personal and in dramatic free flight.
The Aillwee cave experience is not to be missed when visiting Co. Clare.
