FAQ:
  • When can I cave?
    Corralea Activity Centre Ltd. is open all year round and going underground mid-winter is possible because conditions are fairly constant underground (8-10C but very damp)
    You pick your date and check availability with the centre. The more notice you give us, the better chance to secure a date (at least one week notice is advisable).

  • Booking is essential: ring (028) 66 386 123, or email us via our CONTACT form. Booking can be made by Paypal or card over the phone. Privacy policy: we do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties.

  • Can I go alone or do I need to be part of a group?
    Corralea Activity Centre Ltd. operates with both individuals and small groups. Caving for smaller groups and individuals is possible. Contact the office for details.

  • What kind of cave can I experience?
    Our policy is to know our customers’ physical capabilities before attempting any difficult cave, therefore all our customers will start with a beginners’ caving trip before any other cave can be considered.

  • What is a beginners’ cave?
    It is a dry or wet horizontal cave.

  • In a dry cave it includes walking in large passages, walking on all fours and optionally crawling through smaller passages.

  • In a wet cave, you will experience walking, crawling and wading through water. You’ll witness complete darkness and discover sounds and smells of the cave environment.

  • Information will be given on the geology, hydrology of the Cave and its inhabitants (bats, etc…). We will share with you any folklore attached to the caves and the locality.

  • The Caving trip will be carried out in an environmental friendly manner as in the training given by Speleological Union of Ireland to all Cave Instructors.

  • Each trip will last ½ day. You can experience two different caves in a Full Day.

  • What do I need to bring?
    We provide all specialised equipment: boots, wetsuits (for wet caves), oversuits, gloves, helmet, light + belt.

  • For a dry cave, you need to wear comfortable warm clothes e.g. Tracksuit, fleece, warm socks.

  • For a wet cave you need a swimsuit, towel and warm socks.

  • Always bring a complete change of clothes to use after your caving trip.

  • Your Cave Leader will bring spare lights, first aid kit and comfort sac (extra clothing left at entrance of cave).

  • What about insurance?
    Corralea Activity Centre Ltd. has full public liability insurance.
     The centre requires a booking form to be completed with relevant medical information about participants prior to caving trip.

  • All trips are led by a fully qualified Cave Leader.
