The Mitchelstown Creameries building is a fine example of a working building that was abandoned but still has plenty of evidence of what used to happen here. Some of the machinery is still inside, including a lift (which seems to be stuck between two floors). There are some old posters and cheese packaging that never made it to the supermarket shelves lying forgotten and covered in dust on the floor as if someone left in a hurry and never went back.

Mitchelstown Creameries was founded in 1925 and at one time it would have been the home to a bustling and very important industry. From May 1948 to December 1948 the creamery exported approximately 960 tons of cheese to Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Sounds like a lot.
