The 17th-century Kerry Woollen Mills, situated on the beautiful Ring of Kerry on Ireland's Atlantic coast, has been creating fabrics and yarn from fine wool for over 300 years. It is one of the last surviving traditional mills still manufacturing in the beautiful Kerry countryside.
Established over 300 years ago to alleviate local poverty the mill drew on the adjacent River Gweestin for the power to drive its machinery and the water to wash and dye its wool.
The mill was bought over by the Eadie family in 1904 who had previously been in the woollen manufacturing business for many years in Fermangh and Scotland and continues under the fourth generation of family ownership to this day.
