Overview
More
Annalong Cornmill, which was in operation from the early 1800s until the 1960s, was restored in 2014 to incorporate a new multi-media display. Three stories are told within the mill : 1. The Mill was used by local farmers who brought their sacks of oats to be milled into oatmeal. Learn about the processes involved in milling and about how this mighty water wheel provided power to this picturesque building. 2. The Harbour played a key role in the life of people from Annalong and the surrounding area, exporting precious Mourne Granite and importing coal for the kiln. 3. Mourne Granite is renowned for its quality. Learn more about life of a stone man and the skills that were required to work in this industry. OPENING - Please note that this is a seasonal facility (April - September). Groups can be facilitated outside of the displayed opening hours. Please telephone to make arrangements.

Richard took us on an interesting tour even outside opening hours, he is very enthusiastic about the cornmill and this shows. Very enjoyable we had an extra bonus of a local stonesmith who happened to be working there and imparted his knowledge. Thoroughly recommend

Beautiful location in Annalong in this old corn mill which still has tours. Right on the harbor with beautiful walks along the shore. Hosts very accommodating; lovely people and nothing at all a problem. Clean rooms, basic but everything needed was there.

After many visits to Annalong, this was the first time we found the corn mill open for visitors. Richard, our guide, was very informative and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the mill and found it very interesting and educational.
