Aillwee Cave

Aillwee Cave is Ireland’s Premier Showcave – A very special place in the heart of the Burren. One of the most ancient caves in the Burren and perhaps in Ireland. The story of Aillwee Cave began millions of years ago when the landscape was very different to that which we see today. They began to form when streams sinking underground on Aillwee Mountain started dissolving channels through the lines of weakness in the limestone. The earliest history of the cave is preserved in its roof. Our expert guides will accompany you during your tour through beautiful caverns, over bridged chasms, under weird formations and alongside the thunderous waterfalls. Marvel at the frozen waterfall and explore the hibernation chambers of long-extinct brown bears ursos arctos. Explore Europe’s largest rock garden - follow the trail up Aillwee Mountain and discover the ecological wealth and diversity that the Burren has to offer. Take a walk though the Hazel Wood, a working wood where the hazel trees are managed by a technique known as coppicing.
