Newmills Corn Flax Mills

The oldest surviving building here is said to be 400 years old.


Churchill Road Letterkenny, Co Donegal


The oldest surviving building here is said to be 400 years old. Indeed, the whole complex is an interesting reminder of a stage in the industrial development of this country which has now given way to a more sophisticated, but usually far less fascinating, technology. The visitor to Newmills can experience the pleasure of seeing one of the largest waterwheels in Ireland in action as it drives the machinery of the corn mill.
