Listowel Castle’s earliest date of construction is linked to the 13th century.  The present castle is believed to have been built by the FitzMaurices

in the 15th century.

Listowel Castle is located on a steep bank overlooking the River Feale.

It is situated above a strategic ford.

A large part of the front of the castle

still stands.  There are two large square towers and four stories.  There

are rather steep steps to access the various floors.  A tour guide conducts

the tour.

Admission to the castle and the guided

tour are free.
