Very scenic and near the caves and St. Patrick's well. Unfortunately, the mill wasn't open on the day we visited.

The Abbey mill has a beautiful walkway around the mills, caves and down to St Patricks well. Great for a family day out and for walkers. A lovely cafe shop here too.

The water wheel and restaurant were closed when I arrived. Had to get directions from the locals - it is on the road to Rossnowlagh. Is nice for a photo opportunity.
