Blennerville Windmill and Model Railway

Blennerville Windmill stands out as the dominant landmark in Tralee Bay, where the town of Tralee meets the Dingle Peninsula.

At the Blennerville Visitor Centre you will find the working windmill as well as an exhibition gallery, craft shop and restaurant. The exhibition includes an audio visual presentation, an emigration display and a bird watching platform with telescope overlooking 'Slí na nÉan' ('the Way of the Birds'). Also added in 2013 The Model Railway exhibition is the newest addition to the visitor experience. 

Visitors can get up close and appreciate the scale and complexity of the Windmill machinery and can climb to the top of the windmill.

Blennerville was the main port of emigration from County Kerry during the Great Famine (1845 to 1848) and was, during those years, the home port of the famous emigrant barque 'Jeanie Johnston'. The visitor centre houses a fascinating display on Irish emigration including models of the infamous coffin ships.
