I know most tourist think Guinness and Jameson when they come over to visit Ireland. But this place is 100% worth a visit too. Even if you don't like mills and only love beer you still will find out lots of new. Tour groups are very small so you can hear and see everything. Great place to visit with kids.

Skerries Mills us an absolutely lovely place to have lunch and a hot drink. The staff without exception are extremely obliging and friendly. In my opinion it's the nicest place in Skerries to eat lunch. Very family friendly also. I particularly enjoy the goats cheese crostini.

We visited the Mills to buy some craft gifts and came away empty-handed. The main shop stock was almost entirely Christmas-themed tat. Nothing high quality, witty or original, based on this location. A missed opportunity in such a gorgeous spot: the architecture of the building, lovely rooms and the feel of the place. Plenty of good parking. We commented to... More

It is a really nice hand craft shop which selling a lot local made crafts. Recommend to see the wooden pens as they are good quality with reasonable price. The cafe is nice too but if they can heat up the scone then it would Bremen better.

Ive been here a few times with friends and family. theres a lot of space for kids(but is on the first floor). staff are very friendly and the prices/portions are very reasonable. Its a quieter cafe in the town so can be an easier place to sit back and relax in
