David is an excellent guide and was very good with younger members of our party. He made the visit very interesting and the best part it's free.

“Great place”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Myself and my family visited this place recently and we really enjoyed it. A very nice man welcomed us in, gave us an introductory of the place and then played us a short video upstairs about the history of the mill. When that video was complete he then went on to explain more about the corn mill and about the flax mill. We had a look around the mills and there was loads of information written on large boards. There were also more items on display in the museum building itself and more information boards. The tour guide then answered any questions any of us had about the mills. Its a really interesting place and i will definitely be recommending it to my friends and family.

“Walk back in time!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This was a really interesting place to visit. We arrived later in the afternoon and were given a "private" tour of the facility. Our guide explained the procedure of making linen from the cutting of the flax to the making of the fabric. He even turned on the water wheel so we could see it. Highly recommend it to visitors travelling to Donegal.!
