Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visiting Kilmallock is a treat . From the Dominican abbey to the 2 existing town gates , town wall and scenic walks around the town , it is a fabulous experience. The old and new seem to compliment each other as you wander around. Well worth a visit,

We spotted mention of this town in a small brochure, on a whim decided to visit. Well worth our while. We saw the Blossom Gate at the end of the street, as we turned to head to the Friary we saw the little museum. The gentleman on duty gave us a great potted history of the town. We really appreciated the time he spent with us.
We visited both the Friary and Church with far more knowledge.
He even gave us a tip for a cafe, which served lovely scones

Would recommend visiting this town

I just happened to come across this little museum, steps away from the Dominican Friary/Abbey, and the "other" King John's castle tower (the big one being in Limerick). The caretaker on duty (Phillip) was so enthusiastic! My family hails from Kilmallock so we had lots to chat about. The model of the 16th century walled city is fascinating, and there's all kinds of pamphlets, books and old photos to peruse. Excellent source of information about Kilmallock.
Tip: for postcards of Kilmallock visit Abbey Printing, on the main street in town (just past the Texaco station).

Very happy to have come across this little museum, a model in the centre tells the story of the medieval town, whilst the wall are adorned in interesting pieces from the towns history, There are some books available to buy also

I have tried on multiple occasions over many years to get into the Kilmallock Museum but it is simply never open. It is on the route down to one of the many wonderful historic buildings which are open but the Kilmallock Museum never is.

I don't visit Kilmallock that often so when a friend of mine asked me to go on one on his walking tours I thought 'why not go and support him' Glad I did as it was so interesting with the monastic church's and towers about the town and its history is quite unique. The tour was great and Trevor (my mate) who is also a battle re-enactor and historian was professional and so informative it was well worth going. I think that kilmallock has so much potential and it seemed to me that the locals don't know what they have. Some serious investment here would be great here. If you are passing through the check out Kilmallock Tours on facebook. I am thinking of bringing my art students here to check out and document the monastic sites for their history essays especially with the wonderful architecture that's in place.

On a non-eventful rainy May day, Myself and my 2 kids wandered into Kilmallock for the first time. This place has a lot of potential!!!. More history per square meter than anywhere else in Munster I can name. The 'museum' is unlike any other I have ever been to. On arrival (entry is free) in this tiny little converted house, our guide. Yes Our guide - for we were the only ones there - was Phil - a very knowledgeable, and friendly English chap who has all the time in the world to explain all the memorabilia on show - and talked to us in detail on the excellent 16th century model of the town. I really enjoyed it. I've been to the Louvre 3 times. This is better :-)

We recently came across this little museum when we stopped off at Kilmallock on the journey from Limerick to Cork. The museum guide was most welcoming and informative. Considering this is a voluntary run museum, it is kept in very good condition and has a really special collection of artefacts. The museum guide will also recommend visiting the local wonderful medieval buildings and monuments. Kilmallock is a very unique town and deserves to be better known as part of our Irish Heritage. Well done Kilmallock Historical Society for putting in the voluntary time and effort, you can be proud of your town and your achievements.
