The Speleological Union of Ireland governs Caving in Ireland, which its’ website says is diverse and welcoming. There are 10 active Caving Clubs in Ireland, including 5 Student Clubs. There are caves in almost every part of Ireland with some as long as the 16km passage in Pollnagollum, Co. Clare, with the largest concentration in Co. Clare (Munster) and Co. Fermanagh and Co. Cavan (Ulster). There are new caves discovered all the time and caves yet to be discovered.
