The Arigna Mining Experience will appeal to those looking for a day out with a difference. This visitor centre preserves the mining heritage of the Arigna area and allows visitors an insight into coal mining life as it was in the Arigna valley for centuries. With an ex-miner as your tour guide, the visit to the museum includes access to an exhibit area where there is a DVD presentation and a wonderfully authentic photographic exhibition. The highlight of the visit is an underground tour to the mine's coalface where lighting and sound effects add to the reality of the experience. The hardship of the miners' working lives is brought home to you in the chilly, underground mine shaft.

This world-class centre is situated in a beautiful, scenic location overlooking Lough Allen. The centre has a coffee shop and a gift shop on site. It is surrounded by the Miners Way walking trails. Arigna Mining Experience has a large car park. The centre is fully accessible and is an all-weather facility.
