My first time being in crag caves (despite me being from the area) certainly did not disappoint. Very knowledgeable tour guide explained to us the history of the cave and afterwards we had very nice tea and rhubarb tarts.

Did the cave tour. Interesting but a little expensive. Have to pay separately for the play area and the falconry was not available ( not sure if this is temporary or permanent). Tour guide was very good and there is a nice coffee shop.

The “1st tour of the day” doesn’t have a “guided tour”. That meant that a guide took people down to view the cave but gave no information about what we saw. I seemed to know more than what he could tell us. I had to...More

We went there on our way to the Dingle Peninsula as it was recommended to us. The caves are nice although the area you can visit is rather small. Unfortunately our tour guide Simon didn't really make up for the 12€ we paid (which seems...More
