Free parking, no entrance fee, easy-to-find and on the way without going off route if taking the N72. Drive through the narrow gate and follow the laneway left then right until you come to the large parking lot. Then explore!

Beautiful castle grounds and very impressive wooden viking feature. Not much walk about but defo worth a visit. Also the large population of deer are an extra bonus and the kids will love them!

We have been for a few walks around the castle in Mallow. Beautiful surroundings and lots of interesting thing to see. I used to play herecas a child and brought back some lovely memories. Very safe and secure. Nice for a picnic.

Easy enough to find, this is a good small castle ruin. Too bad there is trash left about as it does rather spoil the effect for visitors.

Mallow Castle is a very nice ruin to visit if you're in town but I wouldnt in all conscience advise people to come to Mallow just to see it alone. As nice as it is, you will have seen what there is to see in...More

Went to mallow castle last Sunday at around 5 o'clock , and it was a kip, rubbish, broken bottles, empty drink cans everywhere. But the timber sculpture of the dragon was spectacular, it alone was worth the visit.

It is free to walk through the ruins but the house next to it was under construction so you couldn't go into that part. It had a interesting wooden dragon throne sitting outside in the yard, not sure why it was there but it was...More
