Good value for money. Tour lasted about 45mins. Gerry our tour guide was an ex-miner, he was friendly and very informative. Was a little bit cold so bring an extra layer.

We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Gerry worked in the mines, therefore he was able to give a great first -hand account of life as a miner. We would highly recommend this. Giving Arignas close proximity to Carrick-on-shannon with lots of attractions for all ages, The Arigna Minig Experience is a must do.

We visited on August 4th at 10am. It was all an excellent experience. Interesting & informative. Well organised & careful re Covid situation. Friendly & professional all round.
Our guide Gerry was superb & as an ex-miner gave us first hand experience - he was also professional, intelligent & friendly.
Highly recommended! Thank you.

We visited the mine on our last day and I am so so glad we did, the place is really off the beaten path but well worth it. Jerry was our guide and he was fantastic, kept the tour interesting and with funny anecdotes. My little boy loved when he was asked to blow up the place and make all the lights go out. Staff were all helpful and friendly. All covid requirements were being met.

The tour by Gerry was great. Worth visiting if you are nearby. Also a cafe onsite as well, if you fancy a decent coffee.
