Welcome to Listowel

Literary Capital of Ireland

Garden of Europe

Opened in 1995, this garden contains over 3000 trees and shrubs. The garden is divided into 12 sections, each of which represents the 12 members of The European Union at the time of the commencement of the project. At the lower end of the garden is Ireland’s only public monument in memory of those who died in the Holocaust and to all victims of injustice and oppression.
