Temporary closure of the show cave at Marble Arch Caves
23rd August 2022
The show cave at Marble Arch Caves will be closed temporarily from Monday 12 September to early January 2023 to facilitate the installation of a new cave lighting system. During the closure period, cave tours will be not available.
The installation of the new dynamic lighting aims to enhance the visitor experience of the unique caves system, showcasing the stunning subterranean world while sustainably protecting the natural environment.
Speaking about the the new cave lighting project Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Barry McElduff, said:
“The new lighting will provide maximum aesthetic effects, and enhance the show cave into the future in a sustainable, positive way and ensure the safety of visitors.
The support provided by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, alongside other funding investment, will significantly improve the cave tour and allow visitors to experience the underground world like an explorer.”
While the underground cave tours may not be available there, is still a range of over ground events for visitors to enjoy at Marble Arch Caves including family favourites, ‘The Land of Fairies’ and ‘Wildlife Detectives’, the virtual reality cave explorer experience plus Halloween and Christmas events. Marble Arch Caves Visitor Centre and car park will remain open.
