Aillwee Cave

Take a half hour tour of these beautiful caves, walk over bridged chasms, under weird rock formations and alongside the waterfall (which sometimes gently sprays over the visitors !). Experience and marvel at the frozen waterfall and explore the now extinct brown bears bones.

Birds of Prey

Aillwee Cave is also home to a beautiful display of birds of prey (eagles, hawks, vultures, owls, etc.) and the centre's mission is to aid the conservation of these birds through visitor awareness and education. Enjoy a dynamic flying display or book a hawk walk while learning all about birds of prey.
