The Writers’ Museum
Housed in a splendidly restored 19th century Georgian residence in Listowel’s magnificent Square, Kerry Writers’ Museum takes you on a stimulating journey of discovery through the poetry, stories and songs of our acclaimed Kerry Writers. You will be immersed in the words of John B. Keane (The Field), Bryan MacMahon (The Windows of Wonder), Brendan Kennelly (The Man Made of Rain), Maurice Walsh (The Quiet Man) and George Fitzmaurice (The Magic Glasses). Experience the amazing themed installations in each writer’s room and view original artefacts and materials of the writers which forms part of the Museum’s vast collection.
Filled with an abundance of rich characters, humour, romance and tragedy drawn from the towns and villages of North Kerry, the works of the writers will make you laugh & cry, but, above all, you will come away from your visit to the Kerry Writers’ Museum with a sense of the people and places that shaped Kerry’s literary heritage.
