Arigna Mining Experience, Co. Roscommon


Exhibition Area

On entering the building visitors are invited to explore the exhibition area prior to going on tour. The historical documents, photographs and mining equipment on display, trace 400 years of mining history. The exhibition also demonstrates the impact the industry had on the local community over the years.

The visitor can also watch a short DVD showing original mining footage recorded just weeks before the closure of the mines in 1990.

The Underground Tour

Since its opening in 2003, Arigna Mining Experience has welcomed over 350,000 visitors. Our greatest form of advertisement “word of mouth” is proof that people are greatly impressed by their visit which appeals to both young and old. Accompany an ex-miner on a tour which is literally a journey through a miner’s life.

The dripping of water, the intensity of the darkness, the sight of the cramped areas in which the miners lay on their sides in pools of water, leaves visitors astounded that such working conditions existed until relatively recent times.

The visitor centre and underground tour are fully wheelchair accessible.
