Craanford Mill is a 17th Century watermill housed in a domestic scale structure. This corn - grinding mill has been restored to full working order and is located in Gorey, County Wexford.

Craanford Mills is a unique early 17th Century watermill just four miles from Gorey in County Wexford. It has been fully restored to working order and is on view to visitors, with guided tours and wholesome food served in the kiln loft.

The flagstone floors have been worn by 200 years of shuffling feet, the stairs creek in mild complaint and on one side of the room, sacks of freshly ground meal slouch against each other. Outside the mill wheel waits for the surge of water from the mill pond.
