Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark

4 star Visitor Attraction

The Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark is tucked away in the northwest corner of Ireland just outside Enniskillen and straddles the border between Counties Fermanagh and Cavan.

This truly international Geopark takes in parts of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland allowing visitors to appreciate the best of what this unspoiled border region has to offer.

The Marble Arch Caves complex is one of Europe's finest show caves allowing visitors to explore a fascinating, natural underworld of rivers, waterfalls, winding passages and lofty chambers.

The complex has good car parking, a souvenir shop, restaurant, exhibition area and an audio visual theatre. The caves are situated in a National Nature Reserve.

Tours of the caves last approximately 75 minutes and are suitable for people of average fitness (comfortable walking shoes and a warm sweater are recommended). Tours of the cave complex start with an underground boat trip, after which your trained guide will conduct you through a variety of cave formations, including the Moses Walk, Porridge Pot and Guardian Angel. Naturally occurring stalactites and stalagmites are also visible throughout your tour.

Other key attractions within the wider Geopark include Cavan Burren Park, Lough Navar Forest, Cuilcagh Mountain Park and the Shannon Pot.

There is so much to see and do in the Geopark, whether you want to indulge in a spot of sightseeing, enjoy relaxing time out or take part in activities (via car, bicycle or foot), with some of the finest vistas in Ireland - you’ll not be disappointed.  There is something for everyone so why not come and try.  Please visit the website for more information.

Both Marble Arch Caves and the nearby Cuilcagh Mountain Park have jointly been recognised as a UNESCO Global Geopark due to the world importance of their geology and landscapes. The site is the only UNESCO Geopark in Northern Ireland.
