Marble Arch Caves are one of Europe's finest showcaves allowing visitors to explore a fascinating natural underworld of rivers, winding passages and lofty chambers. Lively and informative guides conduct tours past a bewildering variety of cave formations. Stalactites glisten above streamways and chambers, while fragile mineral veils and cascades of creamy calcite coat walls and create shimmering terraces. Spectacular walkways allow easy access while powerful lighting reveals the stunning beauty and grandeur of the caves. Electrically powered boats glide through huge caverns carrying visitors along a subterranean river. Tours last for 75 minutes and are suitable for people of any age and of average fitness. Comfortable walking shoes and a warm sweater are recommended. The caves are open daily at 10.00am from mid/late March to September. The last tour of the day is at 4.30pm (5.00pm in July and August). It is advisable to telephone prior to your visit to ensure that you can be accommodated and to check the availability of guided tours as the caves can be affected by heavy rain. Marble Arch Caves are located in a National Nature Reserve in the shadows of Cuilcagh Mountain and have coach and car parking, toilets and baby changing facilities, souvenir shop, restaurant, exhibition area, free audio-visual presentation and free WiFi. Education packages are available for school children and for those interested in lifelong learning. An events programme is delivered throughout the year. Marble Arch Caves are the focal point of the Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark, which stretches from the rugged landscapes on the northern shores of Lower Lough Erne in Co. Fermanagh, right down to the rolling lowlands of Lough Oughter in Co. Cavan. All Geopark sites, with the exception of the Marble Arch Caves, are open all year round.

This was my 4th visit. Always check in advance to make sure the boat section is available. Love the place and a great experience for locals and tourists. Roughly £10 per adult

Visited mid-week with my family including a 3yr old. Price was reasonable for both adults and the child free. Short wait for the next tour slot so time to explore the very modern and well designed centre. Cafe was not open so early in the season so can't comment on it by the way. Tour began and after a short... More

Arrived on the 2nd day of trading for the year. You need to walk up and down about 159 steps to enjoy the experience. Well educated guide however we could not use the boat due to excessive rain Worth the drive, my advice is to take a warm jacket, gloves and warm comfy shoes. The restaurant was also closed but...

The geopark is well worth a trip, but it helps if you are there before there is a few days of rain and then you can do the boat ride. If there has been a lot of rain the boats cannot get through the tunnels because the water level is too high. I still enjoyed walking through the caves though... More

Walked down into the caves, as boats were not running and it was a better experience in my opinion as we had more time to see everything, due to having to walk to the end of the tour route and then back again. It can be a bit dark in places, some steps and wet underfoot as it had been... More

It has been a while since I visited Marble Arch Caves but it is one of those place that stays with you. The caves are excellent with top class guides and information. A very exciting day and we walked the river afterwards too. Nearby Florencecourt needs to be visited but might be a struggle all on one day.

Great wee day out. Kids will be amazed. Really interesting and tour guides tell you all you need to know and more. Not for younger children more teenagers as far as i remember because of the steps.

This was a great experience. It was Halloween weekend and the staff added to the spookiness by dressing up in Halloween outfits and were scattered throughout the Caves , popping out in the dark to recite a poem & to make you jump. Very " tongue in cheek " not to be taken to serious, and suitable for children. The... More
