Clare Says Céad Míle Fáilte
  • Cave of beauty 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.
  • Seek out an unusual mineral specimen, crystal or fossil in our distinctly different craft shop.
  • Relax in our friendly tearoom.
  • Eat the appetizing food from our own kitchen.
  • Drink a glass of wine or Irish Coffee on the terrace and see the most breathtaking views of Galway Bay.
  • Climb freely over the typical Burren Limestone pavements above the cave to see spring gentian or mountain avens blooming in profusion.
  • Watch cheese being made in the dairy and then sample the scrumptious homemade fudge and choose from a selection of jams and chutneys.
