Description:

This Connemara mine, abandoned in 1865, is a unique reminder of the 19th century methods of ore extraction and processing. The tour explores large marble chambers and caverns studded with lead and silver pyrite and veins of calcite and quartz.

The mine is noted for its rare and beautiful octahedral crystals of fluorite and quartz. Pitch pine timbers believed to be brought back to the west of Ireland by the emigrant coffin ships are still intact in the mine today.

Historic 19th Century silver and lead mine with guided underground tours every 20 minutes - last tour 5.30 pm. A unique heritage attraction being the only one of its kind in the country. A visit is a pleasurable experience.

Open March to November daily from 10:00 to 18:00. For visits at other times please call in advance.

Admission (2006 prices): Adult: EUR7.50; OAP: EUR6.50; Child: EUR4.00; Family (2 adults + 2 children): EUR22; Groups (16 or over) discount, by advance arrangement.

About ratings

Ratings allow us to identify the best (and worst) of Galway. The rating process is quick, easy and anonymous.

How to submit a rating

Step 1: Click on the icon which best describes your level of satisfaction for each category.

Step 2: Enter your email address at the bottom left, and click the Submit Rating button. Your email is not used for any purpose other than to validate your rating.

Step 3: Enter your validation code which will be sent to you in an email message. Press the Send Validation Code button.

Can I change a rating?

Yes, to change your rating just submit another rating. The new rating will override any previous ratings.

Why do we validate ratings?

Associating a rating with an email address prevents cheating. Without this measure it would be trivial for someone to submit many ratings and bias the results.

The validation process works by sending a PIN to your email address which you will need to complete the rating process. Once successfully validated you can continue to rate other businesses without having to validate again for the duration of your browsing session (ie until you close the browser).
