One of the best examples of Anglo-Norman architecture in Kerry

Listowel Castle

Listowel Castle originated in the 13th century but the present castle was probably built in the 15th century by the FitzMaurices. The castle stands in a strategic position on an elevated bank overlooking the river Feale and is one of the best examples of Anglo-Norman architecture in Kerry.

A substantial part of the front of the castle survives consisting of two large, square towers of four storeys, standing almost to the original height of 15.3 metres, joined by a curtain wall of the same height and the unusual feature of being linked by an arch below the battlements.

A major programme of conservation works has been undertaken at the castle including the provision of an external staircase to allow public access to the upper levels.

Open Daily, 17th May - 29th August, 9.30am-5.30pm. Last admission 45 minutes before closing.
