Elphin Windmill is a fully restored 18th century windmill.
Being over 300 years old, Elphin Windmill is the oldest windmill in Ireland and the only one of its kind in the West of Ireland.
Elphin Windmill's Original Use
The mill was originally used for grinding corn and other grains. It now houses a visitor centre where the workings of the windmill are interpreted and demonstrated. Also, on-site is an agricultural museum housing a threshing machine, a winnower and other machinery associated with the harvesting of grain.
The Windmill is an essential focal point for Elphin Area and a part of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands. The Elphin community maintain this remarkable marble of Irish history as a not-for-profit organisation and all funds received go back into the upkeep and maintenance of the Windmill.
Come and join us in discovering this authentic Irish experience, along with its peaceful surroundings.
