The Seanchaí is a museum in the town of Listowel, entirely dedicated to the greatest writers who grew up in County Kerry. Housed in a Georgian residence, it offers you a plunge into the lives of some of the great names in Irish literature. A visit that should please lovers of words!

Visit the Seanchaí

A museum that pays homage to these greatest writers

John B. Keane, Bryan Mac-Mahon, George Fitzmaurice, Brendan Kennelly, Maurice Walsh… If you like these writers, you should be thrilled! The Seanchaí (name meaning “storyteller” in Irish Gaelic) invites you to follow in the footsteps of these great writers and to appreciate their writings. On the programme, we will look back at their lives, their works and their best extracts.

The museum is rather well done, and proposes to discover at the same time, another facet of the Kerry region, where the writers depict the region with their styles and their words. A great way to discover Kerry’s identity, its towns and villages, and its history through endearing and delightful fictional characters.

In short, a very good museum, but not yet multilingual: the visit is entirely in English, and those allergic to the language of Shakespeare are likely to find the time long. Too bad…

However, for good bilingual visitors, the visit is worth the detour and really makes sense!
