I went to see the Caves as part of the Geoparks Life Universal Access Programme partnership with the Streetwise Programme, Brothers of Charity, in Ennis. I was supposed to give my feedback on the site as a person with a disability. First we went into the Aillwee Caves. It was a bit scary because it was very dark in there and I was a bit worried about bats, but I got used to it and had a nice time.
After the caves we went to the Birds of Prey and watched the flying show. I was nervous of the birds but it was ok. The man who did the bird show had a microphone so he was easy to hear. I think it would be good if the tour guide in the caves wore a microphone too because it can be difficult for people like me who need hearing aids to hear all that he was saying.
We went to the Farm Shop, it was a nice place with nice cheese and nice fudge. I also tried the mead in the shot glass, it was quite strong but it was nice though. Then shop was a bit small so I’m glad it wasn’t too busy. Then we went for lunch at the Caves Café. Lorna the manager looked after us really well. She was pretty and nice. For lunch I had chips. They were tasty and the salt on them was really nice. I was glad they had hot food, it was a bit rainy out so it was nice. The coffee was also nice and hot, I always drink coffee.
Looking back, there wasn't anything I didn't like about the day, only I was kind of nervous to go into the caves. I like everything, and the birds and Farm Shop too. I would go there again sometime. I would recommend it to kids and parents, maybe not older people or people who have a hard time walking because it is a bit of a walk inside the caves.
