"The Borough of Mallow was incorporated by Royal Charter of 27 February, 1613"*, but was a market town long before then.
The town is in the style of an old English town, with one long main street from one end, near the Castle and bridge over the Blackwater River, to the other end where at one time Castle Garr, or "Short Castle" once stood. The Main Street being rather lengthy thus gave rise to many business along it's stretch.

The town of Mallow, and the "beauty of it's surroundings, and the mineral spa became celebrated in the middle of the eighteenth century and made the town attractive as a sort of fashionable resort, and it began to be known as the "Bath" of Ireland."** These warm waters with their supposed curative powers drew the more wealthy nobles to the town on a regular basis.
