Mallow Castle is thought to date from the 15th century and it is now a national historic monument. It was extensively rebuilt a century later by Thomas Norreys, Lord President of Munster, but was finally destroyed by fire in 1689 on the instructions of King James II of England. This resulted in the building of a second castle overlooking the ruins, which is still in use today.

Considering that the castle was abandoned more than 300 years ago its still in pretty good condition and some of the original stone window frames are still there. The grounds of Mallow Castle also contain remains of an earlier fortified house, which is believed to date back to the 11th century. This is a nice place to visit if you are in the area.
