  • Mr.Flynn was a fantastic guide (a miner), he walked and talked throughout the mine telling us all about the history of the Arigna mine,showing to us the hardship of early mining life and of when things got somewhat easier when electricity shone light on the situation. He also made it fun and not so scary for the kids who were in attendance. Great experience, definitely a must to go visit!!!
