Aillwee Cave

Aillwee Cave
The Burren


In the heart of the Burren, lies one of the oldest caves in Ireland. This cave was formed by the glacial melt waters of an early ice age. The erosive power of the waters carved out an subterranean river deep underneath Aillwee mountain. This river has subsided since the last ice age, leaving behind one of Ireland's most stunning caves. Aillwee Cave is open all year round.

Opening times

10:00 to 17:30 every day of the week. 10:00 to 18:30 during July and August.
