The oldest surviving building said to be 400 years old

With the oldest surviving building said to be 400 years old this whole complex is an interesting reminder of a stage in the industrial development of Ireland, which has given way to a more sophisticated, but far less fascinating technology.

Experience the pleasure of seeing one of the largest waterwheels in Ireland in action as it drives the machinery of the corn mill.
