We enjoyed our visit to Doolin Cave - the guide was very informative and learning about how the cave was found and how stalactites are formed was very interesting.

The guide was really friendly and knowledgeable about the cave and the stalactite there. Thought it was a bit overpriced for two caverns worth. Possibly not good for people who are claustrophobic.

This was a really excellent tour of the third longest stalactite in the world and the longest in Europe. It’s 120 steps (12 floors down) and no elevator. Once down in the cave you are required to wear a hard hat and have to bend...More

Thank you for visiting Doolin Cave and for your good advice on claustrophobic issues. Some people don't realise they are claustrophobic until they have reached the bottom of the stairs at 70 metres/200ft below ground level. If this happens the tour guide will always make...More

I’m assuming if your researching the cave this stuff interests you. You won’t be disappointed. Well run, very interesting hearing stories about discovery. Hike up will be tough for some but worth it.
