Just over 20km from central Dublin are Skerries Mills, near the village of Fingal. The fully restored complex, that has been milling flour since the 12th century, gives visitors a fascinating insight into the use of water and wind power to make flour.

Guided tours take about fifty minutes to go through the workings of the mill complex as it would have been in the early 1800s, visiting the water mill, four sail windmill and the five sail Great Windmill of Skerris. Have a turn at stone grinding flour by hand before relaxing at the Watermill Café in the old bakery, which still produces fresh bread and scones daily for the café.

The onsite Craft Shop carries Irish designer pottery and knitwear, handcrafted jewellery and wood craft that make amazing gifts or souvenirs, while the courtyard contains the Edward J Cook Artisan Jewellery School, with courses in jewel craft and silversmithing, the Karen Wilson Art studio, which runs art workshops and exhibits her fantastic collection, and the Skerris Art School that specialises in painting ceramics.

Skerris Mills provides a wonderful craft outing for all the family, in some breath-taking surroundings at an easy relaxed pace, and every Sunday from 10am to 4pm holds a famous Farmers Market, selling local produce, meats, jams and marmalades.
