Arigna Mining Experience - Derreenavoggy, Arigna, Co. Roscommon

The Arigna area has a long tradition of mining which dates back to the 1600s when Charles Coote established iron works at Crevelea and Arigna. Charcoal, made from local timber, was used in the smelting process; however, as local timber supplies reduced, it was necessary to find an alternative fuel. It was through this search that coal was discovered in the area. In 1788 the O’Reilly brothers founded an iron foundry where, for the first time in Ireland, coal was used in the smelting process.

Coal Mining was carried out in Arigna for over 400 years, all mining ceased in 1990 and one tunnel was developed into a visitor centre. With an ex- miner as your tour guide you will get an insight into a working way of life which you could only imagine. Relax in our coffee shop and enjoy the breathtaking view over Lough Allen.
