Absolutely terrific experience and Gerry the tour guide was an ex miner and knew his stuff! He was very informative and enthusiastic - always engaging in our group and animated in everything he talked about. Excellent trip and the family tickets were very reasonably priced. I had wanted to do this last year but COVID restrictions were still in place so delighted to do it this time visiting Eire. I have only advised you buy tickets and have a short wait because it's time slots you buy online.
A really enjoyable visit to the Arigna Mines. Our tour was conducted by Gérard who was full of interesting facts and banter. He was able to talk about his lived experience of working the mine which really added value to the tour. Some terrific photo opportunities both inside and outside of the mine! Well worth a visit! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
