Located in the historic town of Listowel this Castle stands on an elevation on a steep bank, overlooking the River Feale, above the location of a strategic ford.
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, connected by a wall of the same height and linked together by an arch on one side.
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.

‘Your Daily Adventure’ is loved by visitors. There is so much to enjoy, we’ve had to create six regional editions to cover every part of Ireland.
Each FREE edition is packed with up-to-date information on all there is to do, see and enjoy around Ireland. Watch out for them in your travels, or ask for them by name ‘Your Daily Adventure’. They are stocked in most places visitors’ frequent – particularly visitor-friendly accommodation!
It is always advisable to check the opening dates and times of any attraction or business you intend to visit. Check their website or give them a call.
