John B Keane is a name synonymous with Listowel's rich literary heritage.

The bar bearing his name, located in his former home and owned by son Billy, remains a hugely vibrant part of the town's social, sporting and literary life! A visit to Listowel is incomplete till you have soaked up the town's lively social scene and rich cultural pedigree, only achieved in one hit with a trip to John B Keane's Bar.

John B's wife, 84 year-old Mary still works  in and lives over the bar. Her husband's work is often performed in the very pub where it was written.

Billy is also a writer and hosts the Summer Pub Theatre in the bar along with his fellow actors, singers and poets. There's a trad session every Friday night and Mickey MacConnell, who wrote 'Only Our Rivers Run Free', sings every Sunday night.

John B's is a talking pub. The televsion is only switched on very occasionally and you could meet anyone in the pub from Prime Ministers to small farmers.

As a sports' writer, Billy will discuss this favoured topic forever (and a bit) - sometimes leads to a slight delay in service.

John B's is famous for its innatention to detail. So, forget the grind and leave your troubles at the door.

There's also a great outside back yard where Mary has planted a garden in old sinks and crackpots.!?!
