Travel Around Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare > View Clare articles
Miltown Malbay’ s name was derived from the ancient fort that stood near the St. Joseph Parish Church. As such it is called the “Street of the Fort” or what the Irish refer to as Sráid na Cathrach. Legend has it that this name was taken from the adjacent Mal Bay which is equally rich in lore and myth regarding its existence.

This town was believed to have at least five corn mills in the area – proofs to this are the three mill ruins which can still be viewed up to this time. Because of this, the village was termed as the town of the mill which later on became Milltown.
