Visitors to the Marble Arch Caves will experience a fascinating natural underworld of rivers, waterfalls, winding passages and lofty chambers, while stunningly beautiful cave formations glisten all around. Subtle lighting reveals hanging stalactites, translucent mineral veils and cascades of calcite. One of the largest of these flowstones, the Porridge Pot, took 50,000 years to grow from slow drips from above.
An Audio Visual presentation on the Marble Arch Caves and the wider UNESCO Global Geopark of Fermanagh and Cavan is available to watch free of charge at the Marble Arch Caves Visitor Centre. There is a beautiful nature walk through the Cladagh Glen nature reserve which starts here. For the more experienced hillwalker access to Cuilcagh Mountain Park is located approximately 500m from the gate of the visitor centre.
