The Great Stalactite is a world-class natural wonder at Doolin Cave and is becoming one of the most important eco-tourism attractions in Ireland.
Measuring 7.3 metres (23 feet) in length, it is recognised as being the longest stalactite in the Northern hemisphere (third largest in the world !). Doolin Cave has been opened up to the public a few years ago and the Great Stalactite is now easily accessible.
The Great Stalactite
From the moment you descend over 80ft into the first tunnel, with your guide, you will enter a world carved by water. Donning your hardhat, you will follow the rough-hewn route of the early explorers who first discovered the cave. When you enter the stunning, cathedral-like dome that houses the huge stalactite, you will be briefly plunged into a world of primitive darkness. Then, in a flash, you will be awed as the subtly-lit stalactite appears before you. And, far below, a magical stream carries to the hills outside, the water that carved the primeval world around you.
