The Marble Arch Caves are a series of natural limestone caves located near the village of Florencecourt in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. The caves are named after the nearby Marble Arch, a natural limestone arch at the upstream end of Cladagh Glen under which the Cladagh River flows. The caves are formed from three rivers draining off the northern slopes of Cuilcagh mountain, which combine underground to form the Cladagh. On the surface, the river emerges from the largest karst resurgence in Ireland, and one of the largest in the United Kingdom. At 11.5 kilometres (7.1 mi) the Marble Arch Caves form the longest known cave system in Northern Ireland, and the karst is considered to be among the finest in the British Isles.
Lovely day at caves. Cormac our guide was great. Never visited before - staff so helpful and friendly. So clean and tidy. Great food in restaurant on site. Well done to everyone. 😋
An amazing UNESCO site which we really enjoyed. The caves were incredible and didn't disappoint. There are a lot of steps so if you are troubled by 200 stairs then it may take you some time. But the staff there is very accommodating and will help at any time. You even get to take a boat ride through the cave and then get a bit of the history of the area. Amazing and a must see
Really enjoyed our visit here. Our son had been bought a voucher for his birthday and was really looking forward to the visit. We had an excellent guide, Victoria, who talked us through every step and overhang! We got to enjoy the boat trip (still amazed at the weather so far in 2018) with, again, very informative staff. A lot of information was offered, peppered with a little humour and LOADS of patience (our son enjoyed asking questions). I would highly recommend the trip. Bring a camera and jumper!
Nearly 20 years since my last visit, we brought our kids along this time, unfortunately the rain meant the boat ride was cancelled on the day due to safety of passengers however the whole experience was just fantastic and the guide "Jamie" was both informative and humorous. Caves are every bit as magical as I remembered and my kids were fascinated with both the sights and the history as told by our guide. Nice little cafe for a light bite and souvenir shop rounded out the afternoon. We even 'met' the cave troll at Journeys End. 😉
Interesting place to visit, lots of steps so not suited to the mobility challenged. Cafe with selection of meals as well as usual fare. Interesting feature of tour is short boat ride. Nice countryside and well worth a visit especially if you have never visited such a place before.
A superb place to be any time of year! • The tour itself was very well orchestrated, • The staff knew the history impeccably, • The cafe though a bit overpriced served some nice food, • The gift shop had some nice local and regional items on sale which was nice. -As a whole, the Marble Arch caves are a perfect location to enjoy a nice tour and picnic afterwards on a lovely summer's day.
A great place to visit with family or friends! I would recommend booking online in advance as the waiting hours might be long depending on the weather.There is a fair amount of walking involved, especially climbing stairs! The cave is pretty cool (both figuratively and literally!), so make sure you have a something to keep yourself warm! Also make sure to explore the surroundings near the cave, there are beautiful walks and also a small waterfall!
Fantastic place to visit, highly recommended! I would advise to contact Visitor center in advance to make sure boats are operating on the day of your planned visit. This is unforgettable experience and boats are one of the main attraction of this place. Place is clean, tours are long enough to enjoy the place, tour guides are knowledgeable and enthusiastic (Cheers Cormac). In Visitor center there is toilets, small shop with coffee and snacks and gift shop, outside of the building, car park with picnic area. What is very handy they accept card payments. I had visiting the caves with my family on 5 May 2018, the weather was fantastic and we left very happy.
So this is TOTALLY cool! One of the largest 'show caves. In Ireland, and incredibly neat, as you see an underground river! My favorite part was the reflection pool, where you get to see the 'Lost city of Atlantis' and walk below the river level in a trench walkway! Notes: Boats don't run for days after rainfall due to flooding. Game of Thrones fans, this is *NOT* the location for the Brotherhood Without Banners cave, nor can you get into that cave at all anyway!!!
Great day out. The guide we had (victoria) was very knowledgeable and was excellent and patient with the kids and their questions
Beautiful caves, amazing sights underground. Well worth a visit. Enjoy a coffee and snack in the cafe afterwards.
Awesome place to visit. It is one of the biggest cave in Ireland and definitely worth paying a visit. Very friendly staff and excellent guides. Recommend book it before you go, specially in the weekends and bank holidays.
Great spot, your shown the caves by a tour guide which takes about an hour so it's better to go early to be in a smaller group. There is a under ground boat ride but unfortunately on our day due to heavy rain the water level was too high to go on it. After the caves there are plenty if nearby walks with a few waterfalls . The cave centre has a lovely gift shop and little cafe
Well worth the journey. Interesting tour guides, the caves are magnificent and beautifully lit. You might be lucky and have a short boat trip which is a wonderful experience. You spend about an hour in the cave, it is cool and damp...climbing the steps and out to the sweet smell of fresh air and vegetation. A very special experience.
