Foxford, Co. Mayo
The Foxford Woollen Mills is a running mill. Craftspeople work here and create contemporary designs that are delivered all over the world. Visitors can explore the history of Foxford Woollen Mills and learn about techniques used.

The Foxford Woollen Mills guided tour gives visitors background information about the mill. Visitors will hear why it was set up in Foxford, County Mayo, in 1892 and the challenges it faced.

Visitors are given the opportunity to walk through the working mill to see the machines in action, learn about how they work, and the processes involved to achieve the finished product.

There is a café where you can sit, relax, and listen to the sounds of the looms working below. The café menu is created using seasonal, local ingredients and herbs grown in the herb garden.

Call in advance to check opening hours as the mill closes for holidays and maintenance at certain times of the year.
