One of the last working mills in Ireland, Foxford was founded by an Irish Sister of Charity in 1892 and overcame many challenges over the years, in order to survive.
Today, it is a thriving mill with master craftspeople creating beautiful pieces for sale in Foxford’s four stores around Ireland, and in stores all over the world. You can also purchase selected pieces from our online store.
The award winning Foxford Woollen Mills Visitor Centre has welcomed more than a quarter of a million visitors since it opened in 1992. It begins with a self guide multimedia tour of the origins of the mill in the late 1800’s. Visitors are taken right through the working mill as it is run today, where they can see first-hand the mastery of tradition, design and craftsmanship that goes into every single Irish made Foxford product. There is also a chance to enjoy our gourmet cafe and peruse the treasure trove of gifts in the bright and airy Foxford store. And best of all, the award winning tour is completely free of charge!
The Woollen Mills in Foxford are a one hour drive from Tuam and are well worth a visit to discover history that's truly captivating.
