Glengowla Mines

Buried beneath the Connemara Mountain lies a way of life long abandoned and almost forgotten just waiting for you to explore via a unique, guided, underground tour of Connemara's only show mine. The mine is noted for its rare and beautiful octahedral crystals of fluorite and quartz.
