Kilmallock Museum, housed in a 19th-century town cottage, serves as an introduction to the heritage of the medieval fortress town, noted for its imposing gates, as well as its fine 12th Century Collegiate Church and Dominican Priory.

Follow in the footsteps of men and women from the Middle Ages and set out on the self-guided Historic Town Trail through the narrow streets of Kilmallock.

The Kilmallock Museum holds a small collection of implements dealing with industrial, farming, rural, shop and home life in the 19th and 20th centuries. It also features scale models of houses excavated in the area, and a large model of medieval Kilmallock.
