Ailwee Cave

Located in the heart of the Burren In County Clare, Ailwee caves are located just over an hours drive from the Absolute hotel. Perched high on its Burren terraced mountainside with what has to be one of the most spectacular views of Galway Bay. It is a must for all who find themselves in the area.

Hidden under the karst landscape, one can find some of the oldest caves in Ireland. Traverse the beautiful caverns found underground – over bridged chasms, under weird formations and alongside the thunderous waterfall which sometimes gently sprays the unsuspecting visitor! Marvel at the frozen waterfall and explore the now extinct brown bears' bones (ursos arctos).

The expert guides will bring you back to the outside world where you can browse and shop in a distinctly different gift shop which is housed in the award-winning complex that guards the entrance to the Burren underground.
