Discover the Stories
Ignite your imagination and discover a dreamworld, a whole world of magic told by the Seanachaí – 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.
At Kerry Writers’ Museum you will 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. Follow our museum mascot Púca the Hare on an interactive story trail.
