Description

Located in Glenariff, County Antrim, this cave provided shelter to local elementary school students in the 18th century.

At the time, education was carried out in ‘hedge’ schools, so called because classes were held outside.

The students in Glenariff would retreat to this cave during bad weather. The cave is marked by a memorial stone at the entrance.

It is an interesting place to stop off as you tour the Antrim coast or head to the Giant's Causeway.
