Marble Arch Caves are one of Europe's finest showcaves allowing visitors to explore a fascinating, natural underworld of rivers, winding passages and lofty chambers. Lively and informative guides conduct tours past a bewildering variety of cave formations. Stalactites glisten above streamways and chambers, while fragile mineral veils and cascades of creamy calcite coat walls and create shimmering terraces. Spectacular walkways allow easy access while powerful lighting reveals the stunning beauty and grandeur of the caves. Electrically powered boats glide through huge caverns carrying visitors along a subterranean river. Tours last for 75 minutes and are suitable for people of any age and of average fitness. Comfortable walking shoes and a warm sweater are recommended. The caves are open daily at 10.00am from mid/late March to September. The last tour of the day is at 4.30pm (5.00pm in July and August). It is advisable to telephone prior to your visit to ensure that you can be accommodated and to check the availability of guided tours as the caves can be affected by heavy rain. Marble Arch Caves are located in a National Nature Reserve in the shadows of Cuilcagh Mountain and have coach and car parking, toilets and baby changing facilities, souvenir shop, restaurant, exhibition area, free audio-visual presentation and free WiFi. Education packages are available for school children and for those interested in lifelong learning. An events programme is delivered throughout the year. Marble Arch Caves are the focal point of the Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark, which stretches from the rugged landscapes on the northern shores of Lower Lough Erne in Co. Fermanagh, right down to the rolling lowlands of Lough Oughter in Co. Cavan. All Geopark sites, with the exception of the Marble Arch Caves, are open all year round.

This was a great experience. It was Halloween weekend and the staff added to the spookiness by dressing up in Halloween outfits and were scattered throughout the Caves , popping out in the dark to recite a poem & to make you jump. Very " tongue in cheek " not to be taken to serious, and suitable for children. The... More

There is something for all the family when you visit the geopark. Kids will find it exciting and parents will find it fascinating.

Went with family members who had children, due to the bad weather it wasn't possible to use the boats so I was left behind, I am disabled and not able to walk far, both the main staff and the canteen staff made sure I was looked after, that I was able to enjoy the DVD and that anything I needed...

We have 4 children aged 6 and under. They mostly enjoyed the caves and so did we. The tour guide probably wasn't a natural with young kids but he seemed to do ok with them. They enjoyed his stories and images trying to bring the cave formations to life for those less initiated in caves. We missed the boat trip... More

We've done lots of caves across Ireland and Europe and Marble Arch is definitely up there with the best of them. Really interesting and informative trip and some really dramatic views. Fantastic spot.

stopped of here as I was passing it to see what it was all about, friendly staff, and thats really it, I found it cold, bull and really a bit boring, maybe some people would be interested but not for me, I was glad to get out of it.

Worth the Trip, reasonably priced - Pre book your tour and ensure you're there a half hour before your tour begins. Otherwise you may not get the chance - there are a lot of steps for anyone that has mobility issues. However staff do their utmost to ensure everyone has a good experience. Although there are picnic benches, I would... More

The Marble Arch caves is one of the breathtaking examples of the Irish karst landscape. An absolute must visit for anyone with an interest in geography or geology. Well worth a visit regardless, the sights are outstanding, it is an excellently kept and presented cave system. A lot of work has clearly gone into the visitor centre around the caves... More

We visited The Marble Arch Caves in September 2016 as well as two previous times. It is an interesting place to visit and has guided tours which are good value and well organised. The location in Florencecourt is a short drive from Enniskillen off the Sligo Road. Well worth a visit if you are in Enniskillen.

A place that has to be seen to appreciate its beauty. Not suitable for young children or anyone with walking problems due to steps.
