Martry Mill is one of the few, fully functional watermills left in the country.
The mill has a picturesque setting on the banks of the River Blackwater. The first record of the mill building dates back to a Civil Survey in 1641 with the first record of a mill in the area being in 1323. The Tallon family have owned and operated Martry Mill since 1859.
Martry Mill both opens for tours and sells it stoneground wholemeal flour in shops around Meath. On the tour, you can hear anecdotes about old cures, restoration work and the importance of eels back in the day but most importantly you get the chance to see genuine wholemeal flour being stoneground the way the Tallon family has been doing so since 19th Century. Between the sound of the waterwheel, the smell of the freshly ground flour & the atmosphere of the building you can’t help but be sucked into this unique experience.
