"Down in the Ground!"

One of the darkest places in Ireland, the Dunmore Caves consist of a series of underground chambers said to be the site of legendary battles. The Vikings plundered the caves in 928AD; thousands of victims' bones were discovered within perhaps as a result. Anyone with an interest in history or geology will enjoy it here. There are regular guided tours and both an exhibition center and museum at the cave entrance. Be warned though: the caves are not for the faint-hearted or claustrophobic.
