  • The reviews for the cafe are spot on - excellent food but very expensive. The blankets are gorgeous. Perfect for gifts to bring home from Ireland if you're not cheap and don't like that. True keepsakes.
  • The mill itself is beautiful and there are so many lovely things, great as Christmas is coming up. However if you look young you'll be followed around the store and directed to the "cheaper" section. My husband was just trying to buy a hat 🤣 It was really disappointing as we'd have liked to of stayed in the store and looked around some more but got the impression that it would be best if we left. The prices weren't a problem for us and perhaps a word of the wise moving forward, don't harass customers you assume don't belong. We travelled out just to visit Woollen mill. We won't be back.
