On Monday 29th April, our First Year Geography classes went on a field trip to Mitchelstown Caves which is one of the largest and most complex cave systems in Ireland.

On the guided tour students followed ancient passageways and visited massive caverns in which they were surrounded by indescribable dripstone formations, stalactites, stalagmites and huge calcite pillars. They also saw one of Europe’s finest columns the “Tower of Babel”  which stands some 9 metres in height.

The students asked some great questions and their Tour Guide was happy to explain the history of the caves and tell them all about the concerts and events that are held there as the acoustics and the constant temperature make it a superb and very unique venue.
