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

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.

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
