Foxford, where master craftsmanship meets modern Irish design.
Originally founded in 1892 by the Sisters of Charity, the business overcame many challenges down through the years in order to survive.
The area around Foxford in Co. Mayo was considered to be one of the poorest in the west of Ireland at the turn of the last century. Mother Agnes felt the best way to combat these harsh conditions was to establish viable local industries. The River Moy provided the power, the sheep farmed locally provided the wool and the locals provided the labour.
Today, it is a thriving mill with a new generation of craftspeople creating beautiful pieces for sale worldwide. If you can, we highly recommend taking the mill tour followed by some delicious lunch in their award winning restaurant.
