Mitchelstown Cave (also known as New Cave) is a limestone cave near Burncourt, County Tipperary, Ireland. Situated 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) from Mitchelstown, County Cork, it became the first cave in Ireland to be developed for the public in 1972.
The cave is located near Mitchelstown, County Cork, but is actually in Tipperary off the R639 Mitchelstown. It is a privately owned local landmark and tourist destination, with a number of caverns open to the public through a guided tour. Noteworthy speleothems include the Tower of Babel column. The largest cavern, known as the Tír na Nóg has hosted musical events including a performance by the Celtic Tenors.

  • Had a great experience down the earth. It's €10 per head. No safety gears are provided, but not that dangerous, just need to mind your head. No coffee shop. There are clean toilets. Some days there are stage shows inside the cave for which you have to book a ticket ahead which cost around €40.
  • Great caves as the first case open to public in Republic of Ireland. 1km walk great view. For the adults and for kids as well. Bit of going down stairs with bit of obstacle course but its worth it. Also outside of the cave nice panoramic view of the Galtymore hill. Must see place when visiting Ireland.
