The Marble Arch Caves Geopark

The caves are one of Europe's finest show caves allowing visitors to explore a fascinating, natural underworld of rivers, waterfalls, winding passages and lofty chambers.

Located at Florencecourt Co. Fermanagh, the Marble Arch cave complex has good car parking, a souvenir shop, restaurant, exhibition area and an audio visual theatre. The caves are situated in a National Nature Reserve.
Tours of the caves last approximately 75 minutes and are suitable for people of any age of average fitness. (Comfortable walking shoes and a warm sweater are recommended) Tours of the cave complex start with an underground boat trip, after which your trained guide will conduct you through a variety of cave formations, including the "Moses walk" which must be seen and experienced to be fully enjoyed.

Advanced booking is welcome and are recommended for large groups. It is advisable to check if the caves are open, as occasionally due to safety reasons, the caves are closed after heavy rain.
