About
Discover Doolin Cave, an extraordinary underground caving experience in the Burren, County Clare. Take a fully guided tour of one of Europe’s most compelling cave attractions, and go over 200 feet under the limestone of the Burren landscape. Travel back in time over 350 million years and see how the Burren was formed. You’ll journey through a system of passages before emerging in a large chamber which is home to one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, the Great Stalactite - which was once beautifully described as “the palest gleam in the darkest deep”. It is the longest free-hanging stalactite in the northern hemisphere! At 7.3 metres long and weighing an estimated 10 tonnes, it naturally suspends from the cave ceiling like a chandelier. It is hard to believe that this enormous calcite formation was formed from a single drop of water over hundreds of thousands of years. Take the opportunity to experience the third-largest stalactite in the world, on a Doolin Cave Tour!

A must see when in doolin
Jul 2021 • Couples
Definitely go! So interesting and a great tour, very impressive. Only thing is that amount of stairs to go down/up is slightly restricting for some people but all staff were informative and adhered to the highest safety. Tour guide was a young man and very good.

Fascinating Tour

I wasn't sure about the cave but it was a highlight of our trip! The tour was fascinating and the cave was so impressive. Would definitely recommend it to anyone on the fence. We also had lunch at the cafe after and it was good.

The wonderful tour of Doolin Cave
Jun 2021 • Family
Today we visited the Cliffs of Moher and on the way I saw a sign for Doolin Cave so I thought we may as well have a look.

OMG. Talk about a hidden treasure... It was spectacular. Why is this place not highlighted as one of our spectacular places to visit... Largest stalactite in Europe, 3rd biggest in the world.

I would also like to compliment the staff, I phoned to enquire and the lady on the phone was really helpful and accommodating. The guide was fabulous, very knowledgeable and entertaining and the best bit was that we were not rushed. I have been on tours like this before where I hardly had time to draw a breath. There was time to take photos, ask questions and it was very relaxed, as holiday activities should be.

Thank you all for a wonderful experience. I'm certainly going to encourage lots of people to visit.

While travelling the Wild Atlantic Way we stopped off at Doolin Cave and we weren't disappointed. Richie and Aiden gave us an incredible tour and had great knowledge of the site and surroundings. Had a great time and enjoyed the nature walk after. The cafe has some lovely tasty treats too.
