Northern Ireland's caves are situated in 2 main areas bisected by Lough MacNean Valley, one south of the valley, and the other lying north of the Lough MacNeans, the uplands of Ballintempo and Tullybrack above Derrygonnelly and Boho. The Ballintempo/Tullybrack is best noted for its deep potholes leading into horizontal cave systems, while the Cuilcagh area is best known for its river cave systems. The Marble Arch Show Cave is the best place for your first underground experience or why not try the ALP at Belfast Activity Centre.
