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.

"Very interesting"

Had a great tour here! So interesting. Tour is about 45 mins long. Wear flat comfy shoes. Lots of steps and uneven ground. Very interesting. Nice souvenir shop, and place to get coffee etc. Definitely worth a visit. 

"Fantastic Surprise"

We knew nothing about the cave and decided to stop on the spur of the moment. I am so glad we did because the cave was spectacular.The guide was very good too.I would highly recommend this tour
