Marble Arch Caves and Cuilcagh Mountain Board Walk

The Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark contains some of the finest landscapes in the north of Ireland and is well worth a visit while you stay with us.  Ranging from rugged uplands, lakes and forests through to gently rolling drumlins, the landscapes of the Geopark represent a complex Earth history dating back as far as 895 million years ago.

Visitors to the Marble Arch Caves can experience a fascinating natural underworld of rivers, waterfalls, winding passages and lofty chambers while stunningly beautiful cave formations glisten all around.  Tour groups depart the visitor centre throughout the day, in the care of one of our enthusiastic and interesting tour guides.  

The tour consists of a short walk down through the Marble Arch National Nature Reserve; a relaxing 10 minute underground boat journey; and a pleasant stroll of approximately 1.5km through the showcave.  There are a few sets of steps within the showcave system and 150 steps to exit the cave.  Your tour guide will pause along the way to give a fun; interesting; and educational commentary suitable for all age groups to engage with and enjoy. - See more at: http://www.marblearchcavesgeopark.com/marble-arch-caves/visitor-information/#sthash.6wkl4nr7.dpuf  We'll pack a lunch if you need one! - See more click here:

Belleek Pottery

The Belleek Group comprises world renowned gift and tableware brands of Belleek Classic, Belleek Living, Galway Irish Crystal and Aynsley China. They have a worldwide reputation for quality and craftsmanship, along with a history that stretches over 157 years. Belleek’s reputation has been built on product excellence. Only Belleek of the highest quality is ever put on sale. Back in 1857, the pottery’s founder John Caldwell Bloomfield declared that any piece with even the slightest flaw should be destroyed. Over 157 years later, this golden rule is still strictly adhered to. The result is perfection. Each piece of Belleek is created by 16 individual artisans. From design to production to quality control at our historic pottery, the process has changed very little since 1857. Belleek Classic continues to develop signature designs reflecting the heritage of Belleek including the world renowned Belleek Baskets.
