Arigna Mining Experience reviews
Enjoyed an excellent tour of the mines by Michael. It was both informative and well presented as Michael was a former miner himself. Well worth a visit in the beautiful scenery of county Roscommon.

Absolutely terrific experience and Gerry the tour guide was an ex miner and knew his stuff! He was very informative and enthusiastic - always engaging in our group and animated in everything he talked about. Excellent trip and the family tickets were very reasonably priced. I had wanted to do this last year but COVID restrictions were still in place so delighted to do it this time visiting Eire. I have only advised you buy tickets and have a short wait because it's time slots you buy online.
An amazing tour thanks to our wonderful guide that was a miner in this coal mine for decades. That great man has experienced so much and is so kind that he can tell you plenty of amazing stories from the day he first worked there up to the incredible work made to bring this unique tour experience (I visited many cave but that's the first coal mine I ever visited). The tour is really an immersion to the working conditions of the time in the mind but also the town life and the industrial background. So don't hesitate to question the great guide to get the full experience. Really, truly enjoyed.
