Windmill Retirement Village

Our vision is to create a housing complex of ten houses especially designed for you in your autumn years. Your neighbours will be likeminded people of similar age, thus creating plenty of opportunity for companionship while living in a relaxed community.

Windmill Retirement Village is nestled onto an elevated site with Windmill House Nursing Home on one side and Churchtown Village on the other. The rear of the retirement bungalows has a view of tillage fields, where you can enjoy the changing colours of the season. The front faces onto a stud farm where the foals can be seen bouncing around in the spring time.


Windmill Retirement Village is located in Churchtown, Mallow, Co. Cork and is close to all amenities in Churchtown Village. It is approximately a five minute walk into the centre of the village and it has a well-lit footpath to access it. 

The houses are surrounded by landscaped gardens - including a water feature and the grass is cut on a regular basis. There is an onsite caretaker to give advice and assistance should anyone need it, plus a refuse disposal service.
