Hi Jordyn. It is my understanding that the Mitchelstown Caves may not be open on the days you mention. They operate on reduced hours from November to February, though it seems that they open on the weekends during this time as well as during school holidays. I think it is highly unlikely that they will be open on the days leading up to Christmas Day, though they may be open the weekend before that & the weekend after New Years Day.
