Educational Visits

The Elphin Windmill is not just tourist attraction for visitors to the Elphin area, we also pride ourselves on being able to welcome school parties, heritage groups & clubs from near & far, to be able to understand further how important windmills were to the local economy in the eighteenth century. We attempt to show how 'revolutionary' the windmill was as it was built shortly before the beginnings of the 'agricultural' & 'industrial' revolutions in mid-eighteenth century Ireland & Britain.

To organise your trip, including a personal guided tour of the windmill itself & our farming museum, please contact the windmill by;
phone on, 083-406 2113, or by e-mail to '
