Your Enquiry is required.
Kilmallock has scarcely altered since medieval times - lying within the narrow area once enclosed by the town walls, its medieval streets are the streets of today.

A substantial stretch of the town walls, a town gate, a couple of old town houses, a citadel in the town centre, the collegiate church of Saints Peter and Paul and the Dominican priory still survive and impart a medieval flavour to the modern town.

Kilmallock is a walled town of ecclesiastical origin, a monastery having been founded here by St. Maloch in the 6th century, of which the original round tower still remains. Other tourist attractions include the Fenian Monument, Market Cross, and Famine Memorial Park.

The Friars’ Gate, a gateway into the walled town of Kilmallock, is now one of the most intimate theatres in Ireland staging a variety of theatrical, musical and dramatic events.

Another important attraction is the Museum and Information Centre which features a collection of local artefacts, mostly from the 19th and 20th century; along with scale models of the Stone Age houses and a large model of the medieval town.

Highlights include:
  • Guided tours of the heritage town of Kilmallock
  • A wealth of heritage attractions including 13 points of interest
  • The nearby Ballyhoura Mountain Bike Trail Park
  • Great nightlife with a wide variety of pubs, as well as Friars Gate Theatre, hosting regular musical and dramatic events
  • Regular festivals and special events which lend a great vibe to this medieval town
