Take off to Ireland your next vacation!

Have you ever seen waterfalls inside a cave? Aillwee Cave is one of the many thousands of ancient caves beneath the karst-landscape of the Burren in northwest Country Clare, Ireland. The Aillwee Cave is one of the many caves beneath the Burren. It was formed by glacial melt waters that seeped through the cracks in the limestone pavement during an early ice-age. The complex consists of over a kilometer of passages leading into the heart of the mountain. Its features include an underground river and a waterfall as well as some large stalactites and stalagmites.

The cave is only forty minutes from both Galway and Shannon. This magical place is a must for all who find themselves in the area. Seek an unusual mineral specimen, crystal or fossil. Visitors can interact with hawks along the way. Great up close and personal with these beautiful creatures.

If you have ever been here, please comment below with your experiences.
