Bolands Mills History
Bolands Mills, since 1873
Bolands Mills has long been a hive of industry. In 1873, a local baker called Patrick Boland bought two stonecut flour mill buildings overlooking Grand Canal Dock, which soon became a Dublin landmark: Bolands Mills.

During the Easter Rising in 1916, the buildings were famously occupied by rebel forces, cementing their place in history. Production at the mills stopped in 2001, and the old buildings have sat largely untouched ever since.

In 2018, the mills were bought by Google. They’re now being carefully restored to create a lively hub for food, culture and community, as well as a new home for Google Ireland.

As a new chapter begins, Bolands Mills is ready to serve the neighbourhood for years to come.

Born and bred in Dublin
Bolands Mills has always been at the heart of local food production. That tradition can continue with the creation of a new marketplace in the ground floor of the old mill building, offering space for food traders to sell their wares.
