Excellent tour. Staff so obliging and welcoming. Donal went out of his way to make the tour interesting and gave it his all (and he didn’t slag me for being from Cavan) Full of enthusiasm for what he does. Also the other two male staff. They simply couldn’t have been more helpful. Highly recommended

It was close due to Covid. The staff saw how disappointed I was and let us in for a short time. We had a quick look about wish I could have spent more time there. The staff was friendly and very apologetic. Can get coffee or luch at there cafe.

We were welcomed upon arrival and found every staff member enthusiastic and pleasant. We had a comprehensive tour from our guide who was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to explain the technical elements of the windmill in great detail. It was very family friendly and the miniature trains were nice too. We had a wander around the shop and bought a few more items than we normally would as we wanted to support their great efforts. They said it’s closing temporarily soon to repair the windmill. I’d like to return when it’s back in operation. It’s great to see such impressive restoration!

The windmill isn't working at the moment due to storm damage, but it's still well worth a visit - the staff are welcoming, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about explaining the workings, engineering and history of the mill and the children especially enjoyed being allowed to work the querns and also the model railway exhibits. Very enjoyable for all ages.

On a Sunday drive we decided to pull into Blennerville Windmill on a total whim. I can only describe the welcome and hospitality from Donal as beyond 5 stars. We were too late for the "windmill tour"but he very kindly showed my husband and I and our 5 year old around the model railway exhibition and the Jeanie Johnson exhibit upstairs. Couldnt recommend the exhibit highly enough, will definitely be back to visit the windmill in full again

Very interesting place to visit, the windmill was unfortunately damaged in January so its currently not working but will be back in operation next season.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and its very interesting to hear how flour was made.

The steps are extremely steep and not for the faint hearted or someone who would struggle on steps, there is no lift available.

Had a wonderful Sunday afternoon at Blennerville Windmill. Extremely good value for an hour’s entertainment. Ann was so accommodating in getting us a slot and loved telling us the history of Blennerville. The star of the show was Joe! This man just loves the windmill and wants every one to know all about it. He was wonderful with the children, who were entranced with his story telling. The icing on the cake was the model railway. Well done to everyone involved in keeping this vital part of Irish history so alive.
