Appreciate that this is supposed to be a quaint small town hotel - but the bedroom was in urgent need of renovation. The most basic of decor didn't reflect what had been promised when booking and the compact layout of the room didn't provide the level of comfort expected.

The occassion for an overall stay in this hotel was a friend's wedding. Everybody seemed to be very happy with everything so I don't want to labour my few quibbles. Meal was average. Steak was very good, also fish. Regretted that desserts weren't home made, even if they had to be a semolina p[udding or stewed apple and custard -... More

Stayed for a few nights recently. The location is great, centre of everything. The staff are great - awesome accents! #1 Place to stay in Listowel when I last checked! I will be staying here again if I'm in the area.

I just had to write a review about 'The Listowel Arms Hotel' in Co. Kerry especially as it is nearly a year ago to the day since my Husband Michael and I had our amazing Wedding reception at this fabulous, scenic and exceptionally beautiful Venue. I cannot thank Patrice O’Callaghan enough, all of her Family and all of the wonderful... More

We stayed here while helping my in-laws move to Listowel. I can't say enough about the gorgeous Georgian style architecture or the location. It's tucked away in the town plaza. Incredibly beautiful building and interior. The service is so warm and staff is so friendly. They do all they can to provide a welcoming environment. Furnished with lovely antiques and... More

We stopped over for three nights in the Listowel Arms as we were attending a wedding which was being held there. Check in was smooth and we were directed to the hotel car park, which would be difficult to find without some guidance. First impressions of the room were okay, it was a little dark as the windows were covered... More

The Arms is a lovely charming property in the centre of Listowel. It's an ideal base for visiting North Kerry. The rooms a very well appointed and the staff at reception are just wonderful. The rooms in the front of the hotel are particularly good. Food in the bar is good value and won't disappoint. Only negative is a small... More

One of the charming things we enjoyed when dropping into the Listowel Arms Hotel for a coffee or lunch or dinner was the elegant way in which writers from the Kerry area were honoured with a framed gallery of their portraits. Listowel is after all on the map as an important literary town due to them. Alas, no more! Since... More
