Ballycopeland Windmill is the only remaining working windmill in East Down. It was built in the late 18th or early 19th century and was worked until the First World War when it fell into disrepair. It was gradually restored between 1950 and 1978 to full working order. The tours will last approximately 25 minutes and will be led by a member of the conservation team involved in the recent conservation of the windmill.

A maximum of six people, including all age groups, are allowed into the tower on each tour.
Tours will commence promptly on time at the tower, please be on site at least 15 minutes prior to your tour time to ensure the tour does not depart without you.


It is essential to note that the interior of the tower has some very confined spaces, with access to the upper floors by ladder stairs. Therefore the tower tour may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties or difficulties with confined spaces.

All persons wishing to enter the tower must be booked to gain access. Book using https://getinvited.to/heddfc/ballycopeland-windmill-tours
