Guided Tours
Come join us on a unique, guided, underground tour of Connemara's only show mine, and Museum. The Mines abandoned in 1865, are a unique reminder of the 19th Century methods of ore extraction and processing.  
Glengowla Silver and Lead Mines are a remarkable and impressive example of how part of our valuable industrial heritage has been reclaimed, restored and transformed into an outstanding visitor attraction.
The mine is noted for it's rare and beautiful octahedral crystals of fluorite and quartz. Pitch pine timbers believed to be brought back to the west of Ireland by the emigrant coffin ships are still intact in the mine today. Minerals for sale at the mine and now on line.
