  • Ideal first stop for any visitors to Listowel. An introduction to the literary culture that listowel is so known for. Stop for a coffee and soak up the atmosphere. It's also the HQ for Listowel Writers Week
  • As a writer, and keen student of history. The Seanchaí would be right up my street, as it offers plenty of info,aid & guidance to both.When I was Studying local history (Listowel Community College) i had to write The History of Writer's Week.During my research Two Fact's about The Seanchaí became apparent. First off it's not only the repository for all the printed work's of artists from The North Kerry area,with Listowel being the main area of interest to huge host of Visitors to Listowel all year round.Besides being the littoral magnet,it also doubles as a Tourist Information Center. Secondly & most impressive is how ingrained in both The Creative & local communities The Seanchaí is.from the workshops, coffee mornings & plain old drop ins,To Book launches,poetry recitals,projects & engagements with the local schools. The Seanchaí is a much loved and universally treasured cultural icon.By the inhabitants of Listowel,Most of Co.Kerry and West Limerick. - Mark Ollerhead.,
  • Was welcoming and interesting but half an hour did me.
  • Enjoyable and informative experience
  • Lovely food at a very reasonable price. Good selection of books etc in the gift shop. I must definitely call back again and do a full tour of the museum.
