This is Fancroft Mill in south Offaly which is occasionally open for tours. www.fancroft.ie/
In 2003, Fred Hamond, industrial archaeologist, was commissioned by Offaly County Council to undertake a study of all of the mills, distilleries, breweries and maltings throughout Offaly. The initial paper survey brought up 274 individual mill related buildings and structures at 193 locations in the county. Most sites are on private land but two mill sites open on occasion to the public Bellmont Mills in west Offaly and Fancroft Mill in south Offaly, close to Roscrea.
