About the location
NEWMARKET, COUNTY CORK
Mallow 19 miles; Killarney 30 miles.
Founded in the 17th century, the County Cork town of Newmarket is located in an area rich in history, and owes much of its popularity to its proximity to the River Blackwater, a renowned salmon fishing river. A typical market town, Newmarket boasts a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants with traditional Irish music sessions weekly. On the edge of the town is Shreelawn Wood where Mylons Cave, a small cave steeped in local folklore and tradition, can be found. The highest village in Ireland, Meelin, is also nearby. The town is easily accessible from Cork and Kerry airports and is just an easy drive to many of the south-west’s leading tourist attractions such as Blarney Castle, the Lakes of Killarney and the famous Ring of Kerry.
