Welcome to Mullingar. "An Muileann Cearr" means the left moving mill. The name derives from a 7th century legend of St Colman of Lynn. A miller refused to grind Colman's barley because he was already grinding the King's Wheat. Colman caused the mill to move anti-clockwise, and so both the King's wheat and that of Colman were ground. Mullingar, an hour's drive from Dublin lies in one of the most scenic parts of the country, surrounded by rolling pastures and interrupted only by coniferous forests and some of the most beautiful lakes in Ireland.
