The town features an attractive market square with the remains of Listowel Castle overlooking the river Feale. Adjacent to the Castle is located the Kerry Literary and Cultural Centre. Seanchai, located in the 19th Century Georgian House in the Square, Listowel celebrates the unique literary tradition of the Region through an interactive audio-visual exhibition on the writers of North Kerry - John B Keane, Bryan MacMahon, Brendan Kenneally, Maurice Walsh and George Fitzmaurice. The exhibition also features the annual literary festival, Writer's Week and describes the history of storytelling through the 'Seanchai', and how this evolved into the art of writing. The Centre also hosts an archive room, a book and craft shop and a literary cafe.
