Had an amazing tour of the Arigna mines today. Being an ex miner himself, our tour guide Gerry was extremely informative and a generally nice guy. Would highly recommend. Definitely worth the visit.

Excellent tour. Our tour guide Mike had worked in the mines for 9 years and this gave us a fascinating glimpse into the working life of a coalminer.

Just visited the mine and had a great tour with Gerard. Made the trip fantastic for my 6 year old daughter as she did the explosion at the end. Would recommend for anyone.

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
