Crookhaven Copper Mine (Ireland)


The mine can be located on the headland by turning right through the centre of the village. Park by a gate marked private and seek the permission of farmer. Just through the gate, there is a fenced and rubbish-filled shaft with the remains of an engine house. On top of the headland can be seen a large circular powder house, which is completely intact and well worth a visit. Follow the cutting at the side of the powder house and cross over a wall. Here you can climb into another cutting on the side of the cliff and this leads to a short climb into a large chamber on the right. The passage has collapsed and a flooded stope forms part of the floor.
