5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

The Cave is interesting and our Guide was amazing. A lot of interesting information was provided during the tour. You must visit this cave if you are around the area. there is a lot of history in the neighborhood.

Nice little museum is available with a lot of information for the cave and for the Nature in general.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Really good value at e8 for a family of 4. Very enthusiastic guide (John?) who made it all come alive with the Viking massacre history & interesting bat related info. The lights going off at the deepest point is an extra special bonus and an unexpected surprise too. Well worth a visit but wrap up & wear shoes / runners with grips.

“Spectacular cave”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

There is a downside to this visitor attraction - a lot of steps. But it is well worth it (on the Heritage Card too). We had an excellent guide, Jean, in fact everyone was really nice there. Shame the cafe is closed, it would have been a perfect 5 otherwise.

“Great tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

Took a tour in the caves on a whim on the way to Kilkenny. The Centre itself is immaculatly kept with a smile at the desk by a lovely woman whom I forget the name. John was the tour guide and a gentleman. Very informative and polite. The walk back up wasnt the best for my calves but the tour was worth it. Thanks to John and the lovely staff at Dunmore.
