Visited on a very wet St Patricks day and it was perfect as all the tour is indoors. Very well laid out and the guide was fantastic being a former miner. Fascinating to see the workings of Ireland's only coal mine. Would highly recommend particularly if the weather is misbehaving.

I was out for a spin on the motorcycle when I came across this place. Went in out of curiosity and was pleasantly surprised. It has a little cafe and exhibition which is free or you can take the tour inside the mine which you shouldn't miss. It's a great insight into the conditions the miners worked in. It lasts... More

This was a very interesting experience and the fact that the exminers give the tour of the mines makes it "fantastic". I have been there three times this year with visitors who really enjoyed their visit.

We were made very welcome and had the tour led by former miner Gerry. He was excellent and in particular he handled the young children there very well. An absolute fount of knowledge. Brought us to realise just how tough mining was. We will be back in June.

We recently took a trip to the arigna mines and found it a very interesting and worthwhile experience. Our tour guide Gerry was excellent and having worked in the mines himself he was a 'mine' of information about the place!well worth a visit
