Visit the Blennerville Windmill

The largest windmill in Ireland

The Blennerville Windmill was built in 1800 by Sir Rowland Blennerhassett, and would have fallen into ruin 46 years later, due to the weakness of the original construction. It was later renovated and acquired in 1981 by the Tralee Urban Concil, which decided to make it a tourist site…

Impossible to miss with its whitewashed frontage, the Blennerville mill can be visited for 2,10€ per person. It will allow you to discover the functioning of a mill from the 1800’s, and to discover the daily life of the peasants of the time thanks to a small exhibition retracing the Irish peasant life, through period photos and usual objects… A playful and nice visit, rather reserved to adults! (The children risk to go in circles).
