The Arigna Mining Experience will appeal to those looking for a day out with a difference. Now a popular tourist spot, the visitor centre preserves the energy heritage of this area, and allows visitors an insight into coal mining life as it was in the Arigna Valley for centuries.With an ex-Miner as your tour-guide, the visit to the museum includes a DVD presentation, a photographic exhibition, an exhibit area and an underground tour to the mine’s coal face where lighting and sound effects add to the reality of the experience. The centre is fully accessible and is an all-weather facility.
The Arigna Mining Experience and its world-class tour is close to the borders of Sligo and Leitrim.
