Killmallock Walled Town

Kilmallock was one of the most important towns in Munster during the 13th and 14th centuries when town walls, castles, gatehouses and magnificent churches were built. So well built that many still remain for you to visit.

Take in an art exhibition, play, film or show at the Friar's Gate Theater which is also home to the Ballyhoura Heritage Information Center - a must see for the Heritage Enthusiast.

Visit Kilmallock Museum, which reflects local life during the 19th and 20th centuries and houses a model of Kilmallock in medieval times. Ramble around the medieval town at your leisure or enjoy the guided walking tour that departs from Kilmallock Museum.

Kilmallock celebrates its medieval heritage each August with an action packed medieval festival featuring battle re-enactment, medieval fun, markets and concerts.
