A story woven since 1892 – Foxford Woollen Mills is an authentic woollen mill located beside the River Moy in County Mayo. The mill is still in operation and visitors can tour the working mill where master craftspeople are at work on the pieces that Foxford deliver to customers all around the globe.

See first-hand the workmanship of this tradition, as well as the design and mastery that goes into every single Foxford product, see the techniques which have been passed down through generations to create modern, contemporary designs.

In the Foxford Store you can see all that their growing brand has to offer and in the onsite showroom you can find a treasure trove of world famous fabrics together with premium homeware and giftware. The collection includes bed linen, bathroom, furniture and furnishing fabrics as well as a collection of cushions and throws that are all designed in vibrant colour themes by Irish designer Helen McAlinden.
