This visit was included as part of bus tour thru Ireland. Knowledgeable guide. I now have a deeper understanding of how harsh miners lives were.

Very authentic mining tour done by an actual miner who had worked there. Well worth the visit. Nice cafe, delicious scones and photographs of the men working there was very interesting.

Normally you can just walk in. But if your travelling in a large party booking would be easier.

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 👌
