  • Fascinating working Windmill, well worth a visit. Friendly informative local guide/volunteer. Amazing restoration work on all aspects of the old stone building. A take you back in time museum also included with many old home items. Bonus a nice 6acre biodiversity park and walkway. On my doorstep and will be back to rediscover more.
  • A great tour was given to us by the volunteers at Elphin windmill. For a small fee you get to go up into the windmill. There's also a small museum to all the old machinery and day to day things people would've used throughout the years. Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend it.
