Guided Doolin Cave Tour: Experience Europe’s Largest Stalactite

Guided Doolin Cave Tour: Experience Europe's Largest Stalactite

Discovered in 1952, the Cave itself sits 200ft (70 m) below the Burren limestone landscape. Equipped with a hard hat and in the hands of an experienced and knowledgeable guide, you’ll take the journey through an intricate system of passages and pathways, learning as you go how the Cave was formed. It’s an awe-inspiring experience – and you’ll immediately feel the excitement and wonder of the Cave’s early explorers and adventurists, way back when.

As you complete your descent, prepare for a moment of eerie calm, pitch black and complete silence – giving way to a sudden flood of light within the majestic cathedral-like dome of the Cave. The force of nature that is Europe’s Largest Stalactite takes centre stage: a vast structure reaching down from the roof of the Cave, catching the light, reflecting colours and detail like a massive, ornate glass chandelier. This showstopper is 7.3 metres long and weighs around 10 tonnes. An unforgettable experience.
