"Aillwee Cave is not as Stunning as They Say" Burren Tourist Trap Tip by EPoodle

Burren Tourist Traps: 1 reviews and 0 photos

During my first trip to Burren I went to see the Aillwee Cave.

It is advertised as something stunning and must see.

I expected a cave a beautiful cave with lots of stalactite and stalagmite because that's what impresses me in caves.

That's why I was willing to pay 12 € to enter.

Perhaps it is my fault that I've already seen really stunning caves.....

Anyway, a guid is talking about the geology of Burren and leads you through the cave showing few bear's bones and explaining what complete dark is, showing little number of stalactites and stalagmites....

I don't think it is worth 12 € charge.

Fun Alternatives: I heard later on that Doolin cave is much nicer, but I haven't checked yet.
