Skerries Mills Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Rising out of the green Irish countryside, the working watermill and windmills in the town of Skerries are both scenic and historic. Learning about the operation of the mills provides context on the history of the area, which has ties to stone-ground milling back to the 12th century. Visitors can walk the interior of the mills to see how they operate, and even try their hand at milling flour the old way.
Particularly scenic are the two windmills perched up on the rolling hills, where you can find views of the nearby islands off the coast—as well as the idyllic wetlands and millpond. Take a stroll through the sprawling area to get a sense of true, Irish countryside, without even being that far from Dublin.
Skerries is a small coastal town 19 miles (30 km) north of Dublin City. Though the mills are located just outside of town (parking available) the town itself is also worth a stroll. Guided tours of the mill are given daily, and a bakery on site serves up tasty local breads and pastries. The mills are open from 10am to 4:30pm, and the costs for entry with tour are EUR 6.50 for adults and EUR 3.50 for children.
