The water wheel and restaurant were closed when I arrived. Had to get directions from the locals - it is on the road to Rossnowlagh. Is nice for a photo opportunity.

If ever there was a coffee shop worthy of a five star recommendation this is it! This tranquil haven is open each Sunday during the summer months with all proceeds going to the Abbey Mill Wheels Trust. The delicious cakes on offer are all home baked with skill and love and the prices are ridiculously cheap for such excellent fare.... More

It is a beautiful old building and people say the bridge is the oldest bridge in Ireland. There is a café there and very close to it is a Holy Well called St.Patricks Well. It is nice to go to

This was nice short stop to explore the mill and a very pretty spot for photos. There is a small cafe to grab a drink as well.

Enjoyed the visit to the cave, mill, bridge and then down to votive tree and shrine. Beautiful scenery and a strong feeling of history. Thoroughly enjoyed!

historic refurbished mill wheels and buildings housing coffee shop and home baking definitely open on Sunday part of ancient abbey assaroe which has been derelict since reformation times, although the adjoining cemetery is the still in use for catholic burials in this parish of Kilbarron.
