“Fascinating history”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Our OPW guide did a splendid job of explaining how the mill worked up until 1981. Very interesting story of milling grains, and also how the flax mill operated. Well worth a visit!

“Good trip out”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

The way it has been set up is excellent and I like you have a tour guide who obviously knows what they are talking about. Realised I did not know much about linen before going there and know so much more now. Recommend for a quick trip out of Letterkenny

“Very interesting”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Truly an hidden gem. One of many we found on this trip to Ireland. The guide was very informative and friendly as were the other people working there. The restoration is well done.

“A valuable link to our past!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The guide was very informative and interesting. The engineering of the whole facility is amazing. Horrifying to realise the dangers involved in making our linen! Please do not drive past this hidden gem. And......it is free!
