Rockfall in Doolin River Cave

Please note there has been a rockfall in Doolin River Cave. It is in the low wet crawl between the Doolin road sink and the Smithy Grotto. Four rocks have dropped down and there is a lot of loose material above them. A route has now been cleared under the fallen material but this will only be usable in low water conditions. Another route has been made by the Clare Caving Club beside and over the fallen rocks which should be usable in any weather conditions. However one of the large rocks has a crack through it and will probably move again soon. CAUTION IS ADVISED.

ICC entrance to Marble Arch Caves

The cliffs near to the ICC entrance to Marble Arch Caves have been reported to be unstable following a geological engineer’s assessment. Subsequent to this report there has been a collapse across the path commonly used by cavers and the rock-face is still considered dangerous. Please take care when using this entrance and choose an appropriate route when leaving the tourist path. This notice does not apply to any of the entrances used for tourist access to the show cave.
