Europes Largest Stalactite in County Clare

Experience Europe’s largest stalactite in Doolin Cave in an underground tour like no other! Travel 70 feet underground to find the enormous stalactite that was created over hundreds of thousands of years.  The caves were formed when water passed through small passages in the rock, slowly dissolving it, creating large caverns and conduits. The rock is predominantly made of limestone, which when dissolves and starts to drip from the roof of the cave, deposits some of the limestone, slowly forming a stalactite. This process is what created the largest Stalactite in Europe, and you can witness it today!
