Ireland’s largest working Windmill & home of Kerry’s model railway.

About Blennerville Windmill

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.

For our visitors’ safety during Covid 19, tour numbers are restricted to 6 individuals, or family groups. To secure your preferred time slot it is advisable to book in advance by phone or email. Tours commence at 9.30 am with the last one taking place at 4.00 pm.

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! We also have an interesting display of vintage farm and home equipment…… one to bring back memories of past times. Feel free to spend time browsing in our gift shop.

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”.
