Welcome to Listowel

Literary Capital of Ireland

The Seanchaí Literary and Cultural Centre

The Seanchaí Centre is a visitor attraction beside Listowel Castle that presents the works of the great Kerry writers as an audio-visual experience. The words of the writers will make you laugh and cry, but above all you will come away from your visit to the Seanchaí centre with a sense of the people and places that shaped Kerry’s literary genius.
