Unfortunately was the wheather really bad.
We went to the Burren and because of the rain, to the Doolin Cave
The Burren (Irish: Boireann) meaning "great rock" is a karst-landscape region in northwest County Clare, in Ireland. It is one of the largest karst landscapes in Europe. .
The Burren is renowned for its remarkable assemblage of plants and animals. The region supports many rare Irish species, some of which are only found in this area.
The Great Stalactite at Doolin Cave was discovered in 1952.
Measuring 7.3 metres (23 feet) in length, it is recognised as being the longest known stalactite in the Northern hemisphere.
The weight of this stalactite is about 10 tons.
The Doolin cave was discovered by English pot-holers exploring the honeycomb of caves tunnelled by the rivers that run underground through the soft limestone of the Burren. Owing to environmental protection measures, concurrent visitor numbers are limited to 20.
