The Seanchaí – Kerry Writers Museum is a visitor attraction in the Heritage Town of Listowel which presents the works of the great Kerry writers in a unique audio-visual experience. Located in a 19th century Georgian residence in Listowel’s magnificent Square, the Centre features five of the County Kerry’s most esteemed writers – John B. Keane, Bryan MacMahon, George Fitzmaurice, Brendan Kennelly and Maurice Walsh.
The writings of these national and internationally renowned literary figures are filled with an abundance of rich characters, humour, romance and tragedy drawn from the towns and villages of North Kerry. The words of the writers will make you laugh and cry, but above all you will come away from your visit to Seanchaí with a sense of the people and places that shaped Kerry’s literary genius.
Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and freshly baked scones in our new ‘Tea Room’ just opened upstairs at the Seanchaí – Kerry Writers Museum. Located in a beautiful Georgian style room overlooking the Square, the ‘Tea Room’ is open Monday to Friday from 10 am to 1 pm.
