Skerries Mills is an award-winning restoration of a Great 5 Sail Windmill, a Thatched 4 Sail Windmill and a Water mill. All three mills are in working order, a rare survival of 17th, 18th and 19th Century industrial Ireland. The centre is built on a high site with fine coastal views. The Watermill Café and a Craft Shop are also open for visitors.
Guided tours are available daily and last approximately 50 minutes. Your guide shows you the history of milling and Skerries Mills. Try your hand at stone grinding flour, then see the water wheel in action turning the sieves, shakers, blowers and all inside the mill. Take a walk across the crop field and go up inside the four sail windmill and then onto the five sail Great Windmill of Skerries which dominates the local skyline. There are views of the town as well as the islands off Skerries and the coastline as far as the Mourne Mountains. Later, enjoy refreshments in the Watermill Café.
