Took a tour of the quarry recently, well worth the time! Visited the quarry with some locals who also had not taken the tour yet, we were all very impressed with the atmosphere and experience. I believe the tour guide's name was Steve or Stephen and he was knowledge, personable and affable in a way that we all enjoyed. Picked up some souvenirs at the end to remember the tour (bring cash if you'd like to do likewise). It's a great experience to add on to a memorable visit to the island.

Tour was kept socially distanced and the quarry itself is well ventilated. Walking is minimal and good for families and adults.

Quarry itself is okay. History of Valencia Stone was interesting. We’d go again but mainly for the breathtaking drive to/from the quarry.

This is not a beautiful place in the sense of scenery. But it is a striking place to peak into. High up is the statue of our Lady and St. Bernadette and there was a stream of water flowing like a mini waterfall from the heights because it was a misty afternoon. It is dark and cavernous but a relic from the past and worth visiting. It is operating as a slate quarry again after many years of being closed due to a rock fall.

The Slate Quarry is an extremely interesting place on the island.
Well worth a visit.
Only note would be information of the history of the quarry is not provided - something that would have interested us.

If you are on the island, you should certainly make this one of the stops. The drive up is easy and well marked with spectacular views along the way. Site has easy parking, and descriptive plaques to tell you all about the history of the place. You wont need much time, but still worth it.

Glad I made the effort to cycle out as far as the road goes to visit the Lady’s Grotto and quarry. Evidently the slates of The Houses of Parliament come from here & with the refurb work happening on Big Ben the quarry is still supplying London & around the world (Paris Opera House)

Historic quarry where slate roofs from all over Ireland were sourced. Has been closed for a century. All you see is the entrance to the mine. Now there is a shrine there. The road up is one-way and very narrow. Coming down we met a huge off-road piece of mining equipment on a trailer -- no way to pass by it -- had to back up half a mile to a spot wide enough for passage. Made life interesting -- fortunately we had a local driver. Another car was not so lucky -- the folks from the equipment trailer had to drive their car backwards the half mile or so, to get the road open.
