Foxford Woolen Mills


The Foxford Woollen Mills was established in 1892 by Sister Agnes Morrogh-Bernard, and the award-winning Foxford Woollen Mills Visitor Centre is located in one of the original buildings. Airy and light-filled, it showcases a treasure trove of Irish craft produce and gifts, a gourmet café and a working mill which you can explore as part of your tour.

Our guided tour offers a truly unique experience to our visitors by giving them a background to the Mill, why it was set up in Foxford in 1892, the challenges we faced and how we overcame them. Our story is a fascinating tale of one woman’s incredible determination and triumph over adversity against all the odds. The story will make you marvel at the journey this small town took, right up to the present day, where you can see the working mills still producing the best of Irish-made products that are sold throughout the world. Then, you are given the opportunity to walk through the working mill to see the machines in action, learn about how they work and the processes involved to achieve our finished product. You can see first-hand the mastery of tradition, design and craftsmanship that goes into every single Irish made Foxford product.

After you’ve heard the story and seen the Mill in action, take some time to shop for gifts for yourself or a friend by one of the many Irish designers stocked by the Mills. Our friendly staff would be delighted to help and answer any questions you may have.

And once you’ve wandered and shopped, don’t forget to take in some lunch at the Foxford Café, where chef Kathleen Lally, formerly of Ashford Castle, has prepared a fantastic Irish menu using local produce and quality, seasonable ingredients with herbs sourced from our very own herb garden.
