We decided to go to the Aillwee Cave since one of our group had never been in a cave before. It was a nice tour and very informative.

Mighty place to visit and learn. In the Burren, might be a little hard to find but the staff are great and you will enjoy the whole experience. Something different!!

We came across this by accident driving across the Burren and so glad we visited, it is a very well laid out facility with Woodland Walks as well as the Birds of Pray Show and the Cave. At € 12 per adult to do either...More

It is a short and unappealing visit except for the guide's storytelling. The cave has nothing special to offer apart from an underground waterfall and it takes you a brief 25mins to see.

We passed the section from Ballyvaughan to the Aillwee Cave tourist center. The distance given on the signs differs slightly from reality, nevertheless the entire route is an asphalt road. The road is not demanding. You can view the rocky hills of the Burren Park....More
