Enniskillen in particular or Fermanagh or Cavan?

If I were heading to Fermanagh for caving I'd stay at Agnahoo if a few people or if a lot I'd look to book out spots in the Cladagh Glen scout hut which is posher than my house.

For a bit more info, none of the clubs in Ireland have huts, in the Fermanagh/Cavan region Augnahoo (Small Groups) and the Scout Hut (Larger Groups) are the best two options as Ian says.

If you want to get in touch with clubs in the area for caving, Breifne Caving Club and the Shannon Group are the main two. I can put you in touch with SG members, but they don't have a specific social media presence.

G'day
I am the warden for the Aughnahoo/Aghnahoo/very much open to debate the spelling, so to cover all its also known as the Hoo.  There is a facebook page for it called errr thehoocavershouse https://www.facebook.com/thehoocavershouse .

Tis the only dedicated cavers hut in Ireland and is within walking distance of the best caves in Ireland . indeed so close the caves are they are collectively known as the Garden Caves.

Last summer we had  a few mobs over from England. some doing exploration digs and surveys and sporty caving.

This summer i'm contemplating some sort of music/ caving/camping festival type thing at the Hoo. Other than writing that last sentence  and getting a publician to provide on site booze i havent organised anything yet. but  may be some weekend in july/august
.
any questions give me a shout.

That's fab, thank you. I have checked out your place on Facebook before. It looks nice. I'll pass it on to the group
