I do believe a visit to Wicklow in person is possible as part of the NAMHO2016 conference.

I don't think we will be going underground there on this NAMHO (if the trip description is anything to go by). But I am sure at the previous NAMHO (2003) in Ireland that we did.

I don't have my logbook to hand though so I can't be sure.

There is quite a bit of access but whether the organisers have permission is another matter?

I suspect that is the crux of the matter.
