Craggycorradan East, Doolin, Co Clare
Explore the deepest point of the Burren underground at Doolin Cave!
Descending over 70 metres/200 feet, view the Great Stalactite that weights over 10 tonne and an impressive length of over 23 feet long. It is the longest free-hanging Stalactite in Europe and the third-longest in the World. What is even more astounding than the size, is that the Great Stalactite was formed from a single drop of water over thousands of years.
When you’ve recovered from being awestruck, extend your adventure from underground to overground by following the charming Farmland Nature Trail, taking 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.
If you’ve worked up an appetite, stop for some home-cooked local food in ‘Wild at the Cave’ Café before perusing pottery made using glacial clay found deep within Doolin Cave.
