About the location


Blarney Castle Estate 17 miles; Cork 21 miles.

The market town of Mallow is the largest town along the stunning Blackwater Valley, and offers bars, restaurants, shops and a Spa House. The old Mallow castle is set in the middle of the town, with the new castle situated behind, with white fallow deer in the grounds. The area is a haven for walkers, fishermen, golfers and horse riders, and close by is the Folk Park in Boherbue, and the Doneraile Wildlife Park, both well worth exploring. The Blarney Stone, the town of Killarney, and Cork City are also essential to visit whilst staying in this area. With so much to see and do, this part of Ireland is superb at any time of year.
