Visit Blennerville Windmill in Kerry

Blennerville Windmill stands as the dominant landmark in Tralee Bay – where the town of Tralee meets the Dingle Peninsula. It was authentically restored to full working order in the 1980s. It is the only windmill along Ireland’s Atlantic Way and is the largest working windmill in Ireland. Blennerville is an ideal spot for birdwatchers. Watch the local population of Herons, Egrets, and the many migrating species, from the Bird Watching platform and telescope overlooking “Slí na nÉan” – “The Way of the Birds”.

What are the opening hours?

In June and October, it is open six days a week, Tuesday to Sunday (but it is closed on Mondays). In July, August and September it is open seven days a week. The opening hours are 9:30 to 17:00 each day.

A visit to Blennerville Windmill Centre will involve viewing a short video presentation on the history of the windmill and Blennerville as an emigration port during the Great Famine in the mid-1800s. There will be time to browse in the exhibition on emigration and the JEANIE JOHNSTON famine ship, followed by a guided tour of the Windmill. Children particularly like to see how flour is made by turning the ancient quorn stone. The final leg of the tour is a visit to the KERRY MODEL RAILWAY which is always of interest to children and the young at heart! They also have an interesting display of vintage farm and home equipment…… one to bring back memories of past times.
