Mitchelstown Cave

Mitchelstown Cave

Accidentally discovered in 1833 by a labourer quarrying limestone, Mitchelstown Cave has three large caverns featuring stalactitles, stalagmites, calcite curtains and columns, the famous one being named the Tower of Babel.

Visitors are taken on a guided tour through the caverns. The tour is approximately one hour in duration.

Unlike other cave attractions, this one is more raw and more real. Deliberately without a gift shop and the usual tourist trappings, it is simply focused on the cave. Nothing fancy on the outside/above ground, but inside, it's spectacular.

The largest cavern is 51 x 31 metres in size, with a roof tapering up to 21 metres high. The superb acoustics of this space has ensured an amazing experience for the concerts and musical events held in this natural auditorium
