Take a 45 minute guided tour to view a true wonder of nature, The Great Stalactite. At 7.3 metres (23feet) it is the longest free-hanging stalactite in Europe. The Great Stalactite, suspended from the ceiling like a chandelier, is truly astounding. Visitors can hardly believe that it was formed from a single drop of water over thousands of years.
Extend the adventure from underground to overground following a charming Farmland Nature Trail that takes a looped walk around the cave setting. Visitors can enjoy delicious home-cooked foods and home-baked cakes in the comfortable surroundings of Doolin Cave Cafe. Doolin Cave pottery, hand-made using glacial clay found deep within Doolin Cave, is available in the gift-shop.
