This is a good place to bring young children as there are lots of things to do for them. There is a nice café to sit down and have a relaxing cup of coffee. On Saturdays there is a small farmers market which has some local produce but don't go expecting lots of different items there is really only one... More

I use a wheelchair/crutches and of course Mills are not designed for the likes of me! The car park was some distance away and a steep pathway to the Mills made it impossible to propel a wheelchair to the Mill and Cafe

The Skerries Mills is the right place to meet a friend for a tea or coffee, for looking a nice gift, for that nice light lunch, for a little light music on a Sunday, for an outdoor tea/coffee or lunch or somewhere to hold a meeting and all at the right price. It's a no hurry place, its a time... More

We went to visit santa here with our baby and five year old. They wanted us to pay nine euro to bring baby past the few displays with no present. I was appalled! 12 euro with a present. We paid the 12 for the five year old and then they wanted more money for a photo which I declined. We... More

Yes, it's something different. It's a windmill, which, on the face of it appears to be in working order. Through a FÁS scheme it was "restored" but to what? In the café, flour is on sale, except it's from another mill, what a missed opportunity. The guided tour was quite good, with the guide having a personal connection to the... More

It's a lovely place to visit. It is peaceful and the mill has been restored. There is a little visitor centre at the mill and a small gift shop.

We visited the Mills, but wasn't real sure what we had to do to go on a tour. We looked around in the lobby, but left after we realized that we could take pictures of the two windmills from the outside.

Guided tour of the Windmills was excellent. The stairs inside the mills are quite steep, so unsuitable for elderly or disabled people. The Beach is a good walk from the Mills, but is well worth the effort.
