Poor service and tiny slices of desert. Could be so much better based on location and ample parking.

As well as an interesting tour of the Mills, there is also a café and small shop where you can get books on the local area and local birdlife. Go early as the café tends to run out of goodies.

I had no idea that you could visit the mills until the day before I went to Skerries and I'm so happy we visited them! Gavin was our guide and he is brilliant! Full of knowledge about the mills and not only that, about Skerries and World history. Just amazing, this is really a must see! I'll go back in... More

Regular stalls selling a range of foodstuffs on a Saturday augmented during the Christmas period by other, largely craft-orientated ones. Limited appeal for me since prices were quite expensive and products not really of interest. The Building itself is quite interesting with its own cafe and shop selling similar items to the craft stalls. Seems to be quite popular with... More

At the beginning we were quite skeptical we went through the inital part of the tour they were getting ready for santa coming but the guide was very knowledgeable and once we got past that part it was actually really good! Would recommend it just to get an insght to what it used to be like to in skerries.

Just when you think it's all over, you get to meet Mrs Claus,... More

The place is beautiful and very well kept. If you´re interested in history I suggest you take a guided tour. The price s fair and the tour is very interesting. They also have a restaurant, The Watermill café. The food there is very good. There are good options for lunch or for an afternoon snack. Just love this place!

Had a fish chowder, salad and bread at the cafe upstairs at Skerries Mill. Everything fresh, homemade and Delicious! Also very affordable and the staff is so friendly and welcoming. Noticed a play area for children at the end of the room so would be good for children. Lot of locals so you know it's good!
