Located at Florencecourt, County Fermanagh, the Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark is host to one of Europe’s finest showcaves allowing visitors to explore a fascinating, natural underworld of rivers, waterfalls, winding passages and lofty chambers. Lively and informative guides conduct tours past a bewildering variety of cave formations – stalactites glisten above stream ways and chambers while fragile mineral veils and cascades of creamy calcite coat walls and spread as shimmering terraces across rock strewn floors. 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 average fitness. Comfortable walking shoes and a warm sweater are recommended.
The caves have good parking, a souvenir shop, restaurant, exhibition area, an audio-visual theatre and are located in a National Nature Reserve. Education Services are available for schools and colleges.
Advanced booking is welcome and are reccommended for large groups. It is advisable to check if the caves are open, as occasionally due to safety reasons, the caves are closed after heavy rain.
