Event description
Discover the Local Tourist in you. Have you ever taken time to unearth what is on your very own doorstep?

About this Event

Have you ever wanted to be a tourist in your own hometown?

We would be delighted if you would join Jillian Harris on the day of your choice for a light-hearted and entertaining tour of Mallow town. Discover what hides behind the walls of our main street. Who were the Rakes of Mallow? What fish swim in the River Blackwater? Who was Sir Thomas Norreys and who were his best friends?

Come with me and together we can explore and unravel some of Mallow’s myths and legends. Have you ever really looked at those streets that you rush through every day? Who lived here in the past and why are they famous or even notorious? Lots of stories, facts and fables.

Here is the chance to avail of your own local National Tour Guide. Sign up for the craic!

I look forward to meeting you all in the Bowling Green Car Park. We will wend our way through the streets of Mallow. We will imagine ourselves existing throughout various centuries as we travel through what once was a medieval town. We will pause along the way and hear anecdotes and stories of the town’s churches, some historic buildings and stories of the people at every turn. We will admire some of the architecture and talk of the famous bay windows that are still visible today. A short visit to the site of a fountain, where in times gone by, the water was said to have had amazing healing powers. And we will visit a castle and hopefully get to see a beautiful herd of white deer.

Streetscapes with old shop fronts and signage. The imposing Tudor style Clock House will be included too.

Away from the bustle of the town we will visit Mallow Castle and the history of previous castles on the site. A little legend, mystery and a story or two.
