Blennerville Windmill

Blennerville Windmill

Southwest Ireland | County Kerry

Blennerville Windmill is located on the periphery of Tralee Town in County Kerry, just off the road N86 leading to Dingle. The mill was established by Sir Rowland Blennerhassett in 1800 and was used to grind corn for local needs as well as for export to Britain. Milling at Blennerville was continued until 1850, then the windmill began to fall into decline and for over 100 years was devastated by the merciless waves of the Atlantic. Restoration began in 1984 and was conducted under the supervision of industrial archeologist Dr Fred Hamond. The work was completed in 1990 and since then Blennerville Windmill is popular tourist attraction. The guided tour of the five-storey windmill and its visitor centre explains in details the grain milling process and tells the rich history of Blennerville Village, which was once a thriving port. There is also an exhibition about "Great Famine" and emigration which was caused by this tragic experience.
