“Love Foxford Mills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

This was my second visit, so I knew to head for the seconds table and the sales! Bought home three more beautiful throws (rugs, in Ireland) and a couple of hats for my grandsons. Had seen the film and was blown away.

“Excellent shop & history lesson!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

My husbands family is from Foxford so we thoroughly enjoyed the self-guided tour at the woolen mills. Alot of history to be learnt! We loved the shop and had alot of fun making our purchases - came home with a half-priced woolen blanket and we love it! Also found somesome fairly inexpensive Beleek - yay for sales! Definitely grab some coffee and treats from the cafe upstairs - very yummy!

Beautiful bright showrooms but delicious goodies on sale but not cheap. Don’t miss the film show to fully understand the origins of this West of Ireland landmark

“The woolens are very beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I was especially taken by the "sale table" offering "seconds" since the prices were so good and could not see any defects. I wanted to buy lots but unfortunately my suitcase would not allow.
