Blennerville Windmill

Blennerville is Irelandīs only commercially operated windmill. It is also the tallest of its kind in Europe: 21.3 metres high. This 18th century windmill is now open to the public. There are many fascinating workings to be seen as the giant sails turn. Visitors are guided by the miller through each element of the four making process. Within the Windmill Visitor Centre there is a new exhibition and audio-visual presentation on Blennerville’s colourful history. During the Great Famine (1845-50) Blennerville was the main port of emigration from County Kerry. The Windmill Courtyard has a craft shop, traditional pottery, enamel and metalwork craft units.
