This famous show cave attracts tourist and visitors from all around the world who enjoy this half a mile long visual treat. The brilliance of the three huge caverns displayed by the natural drip stone formations, calcite columns, stalagmites and stalactites overwhelms the onlooker with a mix of excitement and awe.

As one of the best limestone caves in Europe, a visitor will regret if he or she misses out the opportunity to see the impressive views at Mitchelstown Cave. This 16 km long and 5 km wide cave was discovered accidentally by a local, Michael Condon, while searching for his lost crowbar. The entrance found by him is used even till today to access this wondrous cave. The depth of the cave might be a mere 1 km but the amazing stalactite and stalagmite formations make this place worth a visit.

Not only adults, but also children enjoy visiting this spectacular show cave.
