We've had an absolute blast on our caving trip in the Burren! Terry took us through a nice tour for beginners which was suitable for both the adults and the kids (7 and 10) in the family. He was really patient especially with both kids,...More

The service, friendliness and adventure involved is something to remember. The time went so fast, felt like an hour but was actually 2.5 hours. I didn't want the tour to end, and looking forward to planning another caving trip. On a busy bank holiday, Tim...More

We did our tour with Terry. He was friendly and always smiling. The trip takes about 2.5 hrs. They give you coveralls, rubber boots, and a helmet with a light. Be prepared to have water in the boots, but it warms up, so you get...More
