“Lovely Family Day Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

We liked the cave and the charcoal making and wood working.,The shop had lovely cheeses and samples to taste. Our highlight was the flight show esp. Hughie the eagle owl and the Harris Hawks.Very good value for a family of 5 all for €45. The staff were friendly too.

“A Nice Easy Walk for a Cave”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

It was a cave that anyone can go through and had some pretty things to see. It has an interesting history and I really liked the whole park. I was even wearing toe-less sandals and could easily walk through it. A good place to check out while traveling about Ireland. The staff was very nice.

“Grand”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Hadn't been to the caves in about 20 years and not much has changed (fair enough - it's a cave!) apart from the guides getting a little bored. Visited there earlier this month with a group of six children and four adults. It was fine but overly expensive for the short experience and there was really nothing to enthuse a return visit.....

“Great for kids and adults”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

I really enjoyed this place.
We came here as an optional extra as part of a Lally tour to the Cliffs Of Moher.
The main entrance is more kitted out for children, so I was a bit worried that this would be a disappointing visit. It was actually a pleasant surprise.
The café staff were really welcoming to me and my boyfriend.

“Brilliant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

I badgered my misses into going to the cave as she is slightly anxious of underground dwellings ,we had a short wait till the tour started then we were led by a very polite guide called Lisa who had a very calming effect on my wife . The tour was very very
Informative and interesting well worth the 12 euro each , it s a must see when your in the area.
