Off the beaten track, but well worth the effort of going there. Nothing like it in Ireland. Kids loved it.

Arigna mines opens at 10 am , I’d say the first tour starts shortly after that if you go onto their website you’ll find all the info you need . It’s a must 👌

Good Afternoon it is possible to do a section of the miners way but there is quite a lot of hill walking on this walk. Walking boots would be required as it can be quite wet at times. regards Margaret
