“Very interesting trip to the mines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

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

We were in Roscommon for the weekend and found this on trip advisor. So glad we did! The tour was so great and personal it was so interesting hearing about the past from Michael. He is such a gent! This is a great idea for something to do. Well worth the money!

Great place and very interesting. Takes about an hour total and tours are given by former miners. Must see.

“Gerry our guide brought the mine to life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2017

Fantastic experience. To be able to actually go into a mine with a former miner and ask questions on what life was like working there is a brilliant way to spend the afternoon. Absolutely brilliant. Hats off again to Gerry

“Authentic and interesting tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2017

We visited the mine as we were in the area and saw several signs for it. The drive to it and the view of the valley itself was worth the trip out of our way. Our tour guide, Seamus, was very friendly and approachable, and it was very clear he could answer any question we may have and explain things in easy to understand terms due to his mining past. I think it is a fantastic touch that all the guides are ex-miners. The mine itself remains as it would have when mining was going ahead, however along the tour there were adjustments made to the excavations to make viewing easier and this was done very sympathetically and very well for visitors.
