    If you like Donkeys, this is the place for you! I absolutely loved it. Entry is free, but you can (and you should!) make a donation towards the expensive care given to these gorgeous animals. The shop also sells donkey-themed gift items at very reasonable prices. And if you wish, you can adopt a donkey. The grounds are laid out so that you can do as much or as little walking as you choose, and the donkeys are in fields spread over a fairly large area. Some will come over for a little pet, while others are busy doing their own thing. The slightly older ones - Ducky, Dusty and Brenda were very friendly. I'm looking forward to visiting again!

    Thankfully within our 5km (!) we finally got to visit Mallow Castle & River walk. It's a lovely pitstop and I highly recommend it on a nice day 😀

    My favourite part is interaction with the 'Bookies'. I am from Mallow but live in the US and there are no such thing in the USA. Also the quality of the horses, trainers and jockeys are outstanding. There are multiple areas to watch from and the excitement is always amazing. Always a great day or evening out and encompasses all ages. A great date night/afternoon, family event or friend time. Also can't fault the chips and ice cream..

    Absolutely beautiful! We weren’t sure what we would find with it being out of the way but it was so worth it! A very large priory with good signage and a lot of buildings/walls intact. Quite magical with wildflowers growing within the ruins and very peaceful as well. Would definitely recommend stopping!

    Absolutely stunning gardens. Our guide Elmarie was very knowledgeable and friendly. Great to see the garden open again.

    This was a great stop we just happened on. You can wander all around. No charge to get in. Still fairly intact.

    We were passing this house on the way back to Cork from Castletownroche and found this amazing house on the Spa Walk. It's a pity to see it boarded up and not being used. I hope that this can remain to be some place to be visited in the future. There is a small car park nearby.

    Nice piece of architecture, unfortunately surrounded by a half derelict dump of a town. You can't go into it or anything, what's the point?

    We visited the bog on the weekend during summer. It is set up for bird watching with a large hide overlooking the pond and Kilcolman bog. As it was summer when we visited there weren't many birds (mostly greylags, mallards, swallows, swans, grebes, moorhens and other common summer passerines).

    We had a good chat with the resident ranger, Mike Hirst (Phone 086 319 7971), who told us about all the different wildfowl that flock to the bog in winter. The refuge is privately owned so it is best if you call Mike to let him know you're coming.

    The reserve is small and apart from the bird hide, there is no where else to walk so it's really for bird watchers only. Being avid birders we'll definatley be back in winter!

    My family left Mallow in 1825. We revisited this town to see if we could learn additional information. It is a working town and is only 20 mins from Blarney Castle. The train is down main street and is flanked by a few statues where it ends on bridge street.

    Nothing ever changes in the olde fiddle and that's a good thing. This is a classic and the moment you set foot in the door you go back in time. The atmosphere is always good in this small pub, and the only thing that changes are the visitors. Treat yourself to a drink in
    a charming old world atmosphere at the olde fiddle!

    I booked the stable area for a hen party on a busy Saturday night and we had an absolutely great time! The staff had decorated the area for us and even gave us table service! The cocktail list was extensive and they were delicious! The pub is a lot bigger than I expected from the outside and everyone in our group had a fantastic time! highly recommended and will be returning
