Kerry Writers’ Museum

Visit Kerry Writers’ Museum in the beautiful Historic Town of Listowel for a journey through the stories, poetry and songs of the great Kerry writers. What better way to spend a day!

Ignite your imagination and discover a dream world, a whole world of magic told by the Seanchaí – the bearer
of Irish folklore. Embark on a journey set against the canvas of some of the greatest wordsmiths the country
has ever seen. There will be mystery, there will be murder, there will be love, there will be comedy and then
there will be more magic. No other part of Ireland has ever produced as many world-class writers and storytellers. Be immersed in the
universes of John B. Keane (The Field), Bryan MacMahon, Brendan Kennelly, Maurice Walsh (The Quiet Man)
and George Fitzmaurice in a dizzying swirl of words.At Kerry Writers Museum we celebrate their work and invite you to gaze through the windows of wonder to discover a wider and greater world. Follow the hare and find the elephant in the classroom. Let the Seanchaí
hypnotise you and don’t let the shy singer distract you. Follow the hare and widen your world.

Following your museum tour enjoy a cup of award winning Alfredo coffee and some tasty treats at Castle View Café or choose from a wide selection of books and gifts in our gift shop.
