Steeped in history the story of Mallow Castle can be traced back to the 12th century when a Norman castle was first built on the site. Just over a hundred years later it was replaced with another and passed through various hands over hundreds of years until Sir Thomas Norreys, inherited the 6,000 acre estate in 1596.
