    Newmills Corn & Flax Mills

    Just outside of Letterkenny is the Corn & Flax Mills in the village of Newmills. It has one of the largest working water wheels in Ireland.

    There were two separate mill wheels, one for flax, and one for grinding oats and barley and this is one of few surviving Irish mill wheels. It was made in Strabane in 1867 by Stevensons Foundary.

    Visitors can see the water wheel in action, driving the machinery of the corn mill.

    Opening Times:
    Mid June to 24th September 10.00am - 6.30pm.
