Doolin Cave & Visitor Center

The award-winning Doolin Cave and visitor centre is home to the Great Stalactite. 

At 7.3 metres (23feet) it is the longest free-hanging stalactite in Europe. The Great Stalactite, suspended from the ceiling like a chandelier, is truly astounding. 

Visitors can hardly believe that it was formed from a single drop of water over thousands of years.
