About the event

This joint event with Engineers Ireland Northern region and ICE is organised as part of ICE 200 and you are invited to bring along your family and friends for a fun day out at Marble Arch Caves.

For this event there is a special concessionary cost for the Cave tour of £6.95 for adults, £5.65 for children (pay on the day at the caves). There will also be a free bus from Befast stopping at Sprucefield which is kindly provided by Translink.

The Marble Arch Caves Global Geopark contains some of the finest landscapes in the north of Ireland.  Ranging from rugged uplands, lakes and forests through to gently rolling drumlins, the landscapes of the Geopark represent a complex Earth history dating back as far as 895 million years ago.
