Burren National Park, Ireland: 34 reviews and 58 photos
Go where bears used to live 'a while ago' :
A farmer found these caves in the 1940s when his dog ran into one of the entrances. He kept quiet for around 30 years (amazing for an irishman!!) before he told anyone about what he found! Since then the cave has been made accessible for the public. You get an amusing guided tour through the cave, see bones of bears that used to live there more than 1000 years ago, stalagmites and stalagtites and everything gets explained very well and light effects are really nice!
Address: County Clare
Directions: Not far from Ballyvaughan at the R480. The roads around there are fantastic, you feel like driving on the moon because of the rocks everywhere!
