What is Caving?

Caving is the exploration of wild cave systems that extend deep underground. It is an adventure sport that involves a combination of climbing, crawling and clambering down below the surface of the earth. 

Every one of the hundreds of caves throughout Ireland is a unique underground assault course, each presenting new challenges such as abseiling into expansive caverns, squeezing through tight passages, or swimming across subterranean lakes.

The yearn for adventure and spirit of teamwork are what drives us to to keeping exploring. 

We’re motivated by the feeling of discovery from experiencing hidden wonders beneath the earth, often tens of thousands of years in the making. 

Caving will give you the opportunity to face unique challenges, and the sense of accomplishment from overcoming them will keep you coming back for more!
