Ireland's Premier Showcave is an experience which should be a part of everyone's visit to the Burren. Not only is it a stunning walk, Aillwee Cave is also home to Ireland's largest display of Falcons, Harris Hawks, Owls, American Kestrels and White Tailed Sea Eagles.
Guided tours of the cave every fifteen minutes. It is an easy walk alongside the hibernation pits of the long extinct uros arctos bears. Over the bridged caverns, under waterfalls, marvel at the stalactites, stalagmites and unusual formations. Climb the mountainside behind the cave to appreciate the landscape spreading out below and walk over the typical limestone pavements to view the spring gentian or mountain avens.
Shop and browse through distinctly different craft shops such as the Farm Shop where cheese, stock jams, chutneys and home made fudge are produced.
Bring the whole family for a fun packed day touring the caves, wandering the majestic Woodland Trails, watching falcons and hawks at the Birds of Prey center or enjoy a peaceful stroll through our Mountain Walks. Visit Aillwee Cave on your next self-drive tour of Ireland with Celtic Tours.
