Hi, I did not include any grid references or Latitude/Longitude directions, simply because I did not know them!
It is situated in Galway, near the town of Oughterard
Coordinates 53 25’ 6” N 9 22’ 28” W
just off the road between this town and Clifden.

If you have been to the mine, Adit Now will enable you to locate the spot using Google Earth without knowing the coordinates.
