AT THE LIFE OF THE WRITER

Listowel Through the Ages

JOURNEY INTO THE PAST TO DISCOVER YOUR HISTORY
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.

Step back in time and discover the history of Ireland’s ancient landscape at ‘Listowel through the Ages’ interactive exhibition. Explore Medieval Ireland and the Famine, the turbulent years of War and Independence. Encounter enchanted underwater cities, rebellious Knights, and the world’s strangest train!
