St Patrick's Tower information
St Patrick’s Tower is Europe’s tallest smock windmill (with a revolving top). It was built in 1757 to power the Roe Distillery, which by 1887 covered 17 acres and produced over two million gallons of whiskey annually, making it Europe's largest distillery. By the mid 1920s, however, the global whiskey market was in decline and the distillery was eventually sold in 1949 to its neighbours, Guinness.
