Found this old corn mill while driving all over the place looking for the nearby Athcarne Castle. Very little information about this site online, though it seems to have been built in the late 1600s/early 1700s by the Walsh family. Historical records show the importance of corn mills to the local economy in the 17th and 18th centuries with over 100 corn mills throughout Meath recorded in a 1654 census. The large beautiful house right across the road from the mill was built by the Walsh family in the 1760s, it is now high-end self catering accommodation The old mill is an incredibly interesting and imposing building with a disused waterway running through it, the waterway would’ve been used for power and for transportation and seems to have been a man-made canal leading to the nearby River Nanny. I would recommend parking a bit up the road from the entrance and scooting into the building super fast as someone from the house across the road started shouting at me as I left!
