Reviewed 29 April 2014

Our guide was an ex-miner and gave us a very interesting insight as to what life was like for the daily workers. Visited the underground tunnels and is well worth a visit

“Down the pits.”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

A fascinating tour of a old coal mine. Shows you just what a brutal job it was. The tour guide, Seamus, was an old miner who had worked this very mine which made for a very interesting tour. Ask a question and he would elaborate with a tale from his mining days.

“An interesting experience”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

This attraction lets you experience what the lifes of the miners must have been like.

At least you stay dry and clean and at the end of it can have a nice cup of tea in the visitor centre

I would recommend a visit.

“Worth A Visit”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

The Arigna Mining Experience is a wonderful way to explore mines underground and get a good insight into the life of a miner in the North West of Ireland. Our tour was given by a minor who worked in Arigna, so his knowledge and experience was wonderful. Could do with a better Restaurant and coffee shop. Otherwise the experience is worth a visit.
