About Mitchelstown

Mitchelstown  is a small country town in County Cork in the south-west of Ireland. Mitchelstown nestles in the valley to the south of the Galtee Mountains close to the Mitchelstown Caves and is roughly 25 km from Cahir and roughly 36 km from Limerick. Brí Gobann, meaning “hill of Gobann”, was the original name for site of the town which takes its present name from the Anglo-Norman Mitchel or Micheal family who established a settlement here in the 12th century. The Gradog river runs by the town into the Funshion river, which in turn is a tributary of the nearby Blackwater river. What better way to relax after a day exploring Mitchelstown than in the comfort of a Bed and Breakfast.

History

Mitchelstown is believed to have been originally established and centred around a part of the town known as Brí Gobhann (anglicised Brigown) by Saint Fanahan in or around the 8th century. The town was subsequently redesigned and rebuilt by the Kingston family and today retains the basic layout constructed by them including several interesting stone buildings designed in a late Georgian style of architecture. The layout established by the Earl of Kingston between 1775 and 1820 was one of the earliest planned town layouts in Ireland. Our Bed and Breakfast is located near to Mitchelstown centre.

Mitchelstown Music Festival

The Market square in Mitchelstown has seen many incarnations of the Mitchelstown Music Festival since its beginnings in the early 1990s. Originally an idea of local people over a few pints, it originally started out as “The Deer Festival” sponsored by a local businessman. The event was quickly titled “The Beer Festival” locally and became a staple event on the calendar taking place yearly on the August bank Holiday weekend. The four-day event saw numerous acts perform free gigs over the years including Boyzone, Samantha Mumba, Mary Black, Aslan, The Revs, The Proclaimers, Jerry Fish and many more. Book a Bed and Breakfast for the festival in Mitchelstown and be close to all the activities and events. A B&B is a great place to stay and with our keen prices, you will get a great deal.
