One of Europe’s Major Showcaves. Mitchelstown Cave is one of the largest and most complex cave systems in Ireland. On the guided tour you will follow ancient passageways and visit massive caverns in which you are surrounded by indescribable cave formations, stalactites, stalagmites and huge calcite pillars.
