AILLWEE IS HOME TO:
Ireland’s Premiere Show Cave; Expert guides will accompany and inform you during your leisurely Cave tour. The tour consists of a 35-minute stroll through the beautiful caverns unveiling a unique Burren underground landscape.
The Birds of Prey Centre has been educating and entertaining visitors with dynamic flying displays set against the dramatic Burren Landscape, since 2008. The centre offers dynamic flying displays where the visitor can interact and get up close and personal to the birds, a home to eagles, falcons, hawks, and owls from all over the world. An awareness of raptor conservation both in Ireland and internationally is also important.
In the Farmshop, allow your Foodie self to take over as you see the location of the Cheese Factory and see the Gouda style cheese being made in front of you during its season – April to October.
