  • 5 star ratingGreat day trip! We visited during a recent trip to Enniskillen. Knowledgeable guides. Unfortunately, due to recent flooding, we were unable to take the boat portion of the tour, only the walking. But, it was still quite a nice experience. A lot of walking up and down steps, and on uneven surfaces.

  • 5 star ratingFabulous visit to these caves We went to these caves last week while touring. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide was very informative. There are a lot of steps at the beginning going down and at the end coming back up but the guide let us take our time and stopped here and there to talk so it wasn’t too bad. The short boat trip was magical when we first got to the bottom. We had coffee before we saw the caves in the restaurant and they had a good selection of food too

  • 5 star ratingMust See in Fermanagh! The caves are excellent and the tours are well worth the drive. Lots to do nearby including walks to the forest and up Cuilcagh Mountain.

  • 5 star ratingWow it was as beautiful as I expected We went on a day where there had been a lot of rainfall so the boat entrance in was closed (we called ahead and was aware of this before we arrived). However this had no affect on our experience we had a great time. The wait for our tour was 40 minutes but they had a cafe and information areas we used while we waited. There is also a walk that we could have done.
    The caves were well lite up and informative for both adults and children.

  • 5 star ratingFine example of underground cave network If you have never visited an underground cave network then this is a fine example. Visited on a wet Saturday so got an authentic experience of water running down the walls of the caves. The tour takes about 1 hour and with reduced numbers on the tours, advanced booking is recommended. Be warned that you climb down steps to enter the cave network but worth it when there. Tour guide Majella did a great job.

  • 5 star ratingGreat experience Brilliant tour, maeve was very knowledgeable and friendly. Great value for money. For those worried about feeling claustrophobic, please don't. You can walk upright the entire time, ceilings are high and it feels very safe.
