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!

Visited The Abbey Mill yesterday along with some friends from Ballyshannon area.

The scenery is beautiful as the river winds down through the woodland and past the water wheels at the mill.

The wheels still operate and it is a tremendous sound to hear the clunk of the wheel as it rotates full of water.

On a Sunday, from 12 to 5 there is a coffee shop and craft stall in the mill.
Operated by volunteers it raises funds for the upkeep of the mill and water wheels.
Offering freshly baked scones, pastries, tarts and cakes (including a delicious strawberry and fresh cream Victoria sponge), washed down with free refill coffee, this is a must visit stop.

So glad Ciaran and Mary took us there for coffee and cake.

Will definitely be back.

Stopped in here as I have done in the past for a wee coffee all done by local who give up their time to maintain this beautiful building and walks . Nestled down a slip road just out of ballyshannon on the main road to rosnawalagh , this place is amazing to all you people interested in restoration of old building s. A mill of some description with its large water wheels it's pleasant on the eye as you drink your coffee or tea , with fresh home made cake makes a Sunday afternoon more enjoyable . There's a little walk up past the river which I found beautiful and peaceful , where a mass would have been said in penal times .at the top of the hill walk down to st Patricks well , steep but at the bottom I counted 36 swans waiting to feed from the river that meets the see again so peaceful , but this was a beautiful day , tip be careful on a wet day could be slippy , just look at my photos this will explain worth a visit

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.
