Doolin Cave

Doolin Cave, is one of the best kept secrets of the Wild Atlantic Way. It is a family run attraction harbouring ‘the Great Stalactite’, one of the world’s most magnificent wonders, deep under the karst landscape of the Burren.

If you have the spirit of an explorer within, then you will really enjoy the experience of visiting this great geological wonder.

On a fully guided tour you are brought back 350 million years to see and learn how our world looked back then and how the Burren/Wild Atlantic Way was formed, memories of high school geography lessons will come flooding back.

You can take your adventure from underground to above ground on a charming farmland nature trail that takes a 1km looped walk around the outside of the cave. Visit some rare and miniature breeds of animals on the trail and learn more about the nature of the Burren and the Wild Atlantic Way from the key discovery points dotted along the route.
