Mullins Mill is one of 16 mills that once operated within a 5-mile stretch on the Kings River. Although the current buildings date to the late 1700's when the Mullins family established a flour mill complex, a mill was first constructed on the site around 1204.
Decommissioned in the 1960's the mill has been sympathetically maintained under various guises until adaptation as a small museum and craft shop, retaining most of the historic attributes.
A former Cistercian Abbey, founded in the second half of the 12th century, near Thomastown, County Kilkenny,
The present ruins are very extensive and display some specimens of the later Norman passing into the early English style of architecture. Jerpoint is notable for its stone carvings and boasts a magnificently sculptured cloister arcade.
Jerpoint Abbey is one of the most complete Irish Cistercian monasteries and we highly recommend a visit.
