About
The tour includes 15 minutes of storytelling and an introduction to how the last leprechauns of Ireland became a protected species by the E.U..This is done in the story room across from the cavern at Shalom B.B.You may park there. This is followed by a visit below the ground where leprechauns and fairies converge in the morning as the sun rises. The visit is predominately indoors and definately great for a rainy day. It is not really suitable for children under 5 or who have not lost a tooth.If children are crying or disruptive, parents may be asked to leave with them till quiet, to allow other attendees to enjoy the whole experience. Adults should enjoy it at any age!

    Fantastic tour, good fun
    What a great little trip! We unfortunately read an outdated website and tried to get a 3pm tour which was not running, so make sure you check before travel. However there was a private tour running who allowed us to join so they saved the day! We were 3 adults, baby and a 4 year old and we all loved it! Brilliant fun and something we'll remember forever, thank you!
    Its taken me a long time Ema,but thank you for your lovely review Kind Regards Kevin

    Great Fun Learning about and Experiencing Leprechauns in Carlingford
    This was an exceptional outing for our grandchildren aged 6 and 9. Kevin is a fine storyteller in the best Irish tradition, and his tales of the Little People entranced our kids. After hearing the story and going to the nearby cavern, the kids really felt like they were in the presence of leprechauns. Although there are usually more people for this program, Kevin graciously arranged to do a program for our group of four between Christmas and New Years when we were passing through the area. The village where this program is held is a lovely Irish seaside place that is worth a visit in its own right. The Leprechaun and Fairy Underground Cavern program is a fun and worthwhile activity, and you should do it if you have children from age 5 up if you have the chance.
    Sorry for taking so long to thank you for your great review I am delighted you enjoyed it so much. Kind Regards Kevin

    An Utterly Magical place/Experience
    One rainy Sunday in March ‘24 our family of four set out in a Leprechaun hunt having travelled from Scotland for our leprechaun obsessed daughters birthday. This experience was absolutely magical and will be a core memory for our two children 7 and 9. Kevin, the leprechaun whisperer, was amazing with the children (and us big kids too). This is one of our most favourite family days out ever, and definitely worth the journey! If you are visiting Ireland, I couldn’t recommend more highly! We can’t wait to see the Carlichauns!! Thanks for such a wonderful experience.
    Apologies Claire for not writing sooner.Thank you for your great review. It was lovely to meet such a happy family and for allowing me to be part of one of your best days. Kind Regards Kevin

    The Best Craic on a wet windy day!
    The Leprechaun whisperer (Kevin) was exceptional!!! We really enjoyed his folklore stories the Cavern and park were fantastic, the attention to detail was perfect in every aspect . We went as a group of 8 adults as i had brought my wee Auntie and cousin as well from Newcastle upon Tyne.. We all had a fantastic time even the non believers ! . The whole tour was magical and there was great craic all round!! The Leprechauns that came home with us, will their own place in our respective homes. ! I would really recommend this tour, very good value for money too. it is suited for all age groups.our ages were 40-77 and each of us had the best time...we I'll definitely be back....... Thank you so much for such a wonderful time, we are still laughing about our adventure!! With Wee Auntie Eve !!
    Sorry Joanne I should have written sooner to thank you for such a great review. So pleased that Auntie had such a great time. Kind Regards Kevin

    A great day out for all the family.
    Had a great day out to meet Kevin at the Carlingford Leprechaun and Fairy Cavern. Kevin is a great character and a gentleman. It was great to learn about the folklore of leprechauns and the history associated with Carlingford. Kevin is a great storyteller and has a great set up with the underground cavern and the upstairs story telling room. Whether you're a skeptic or believer, it's a fun light-hearted activity and it's great to see an important part of Irish folklore and history being kept alive. There's also some great Leprechaun and Irish souvenirs that can be purchased at the shop which would be a great piece of Ireland for tourists to take home with them.
    Hi Darren Thank you for your kind review.. Delighted you and Shery enjoyed it. Kind Regards Kevin

Beautiful setting made all the more magical by the one and only Kevin. Our 7 & 8 year old were captivated by him. A magnificent story teller and gave us plenty of giggles. Would highly recommend.

The Leprechaun Whisperer was brilliant, he kept the attention of the group with his entertaining story of how he became a Leprechaun Whisperer. My boys aged 5 and 9 loved it. It's everything the kids love - magic, Leprechauns, Fairies, and a bit of mystery. The Cavern and surrounding Park are full of detail and very well kept. The Leprechaun's we brought home have pride of place in our house. It's well worth a visit.
