Mallow is a thriving and prosperous market centre, it is the largest town along the lovely Blackwater Valley, and a good centre from which to explore that river and many interesting locations in the neighbourhood.

Mallow Clock Tower

Up to a century ago it was renowned as a spa, with crowds of visitors frequenting it - crowds whose behaviour gave rise to the well-known song 'The Rakes of Mallow'. The old Mallow Castle stands in the middle of the town. Behind it stands the 'new' castle, a fine baronial building privately owned and superbly maintained.

In the grounds you might catch a glimpse of a herd of white fallow deer. They are all descended from two white bucks presented by Queen Elizabeth I to an earlier owner.
