  • Quality. Tour felt slightly rushed at 1/2 hr (fine really, just personal preference) and was hard to absorb everything, but very interesting and insightful nonetheless

  • The experience of going into an old mine is fantastic. You get to see some of the mining gear working, in depth explanations from the guides, walk through the mine, friendly staff, great museum with loads of history of Arigna and the people who mined the coal here. There will be a video out shortly on my channel on YouTube. Its a great destination to visit. Some photos attached but make it your top destination in Roscommon. Highly recommended
  • We are just out of a fabulous tour of the mines. Gerry was our tour guide. He was full of information and very entertaining. The place itself is very well maintained and fully accessible to get around. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.
