Very scenic and near the caves and St. Patrick's well. Unfortunately, the mill wasn't open on the day we visited.

The Abbey mill has a beautiful walkway around the mills, caves and down to St Patricks well. Great for a family day out and for walkers. A lovely cafe shop here too.

Two buildings one slightly lower down hill,both originally using the same running water to operate flax processing machinery. Presently the lower water wheel drives generators producing electricity to heat buildings..good coffee and home baking available here,sitting next to water wheel and over river,very restful. Upper water wheel house contains examples of flax and linen product. Good photographic display. Surprisingly safe... More

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.
