Old Mill Stores

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Two questions will quickly run through your mind when you are in the Old Mill stores.
The first is: is it ok if I buy everything in the shop?
The second is: how come these guys have such exquisite taste?
And that’s the nub: because Tom and Claire have such exquisite taste in finding and choosing beautiful things for your home and office and garden, you actually want to buy all the things that they have for sale. This is a shop, for instance, that sells the most beautiful clothes pegs.
We’re not joking.
The clothes pegs are the original, wooden, single piece peg, known as storm pegs, and not the spring-hinged peg that stormed the world in the mid-19th century. The Old Mill Stores peg is like something that has been whittled by hand. It’s the kind of thing that makes you look forward to hanging out the laundry.
And that is the secret of this great store: everything here has a story, and a reason to exist, and there is a reason why Tom and Claire sell it.
And please don’t buy everything in the shop: we might be coming along the N71 at that very moment, coming down the hill to Connonagh. Us, and everyone else in search of some beauty for our home.
