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

The Listowel Arms is beautifully located right in the heart of Listowel. When we arrived we were greeted with an amazing chorus of birdsong from the flock of starlings roosting in the ivy clad walls. The hotel itself is all old-style charm, on a bitterly cold January day the roaring fire in the lobby was welcome and the staff displayed... More

You can bet you can do little better than the Listowel Arms when staying in this part of Kerry. While the service has a touch of the Mrs Pinafore, it's all part of the charm. Food is good and the setting, on the town square, yet also by the racecourse and river is hard to beat.

This is now my favorite hotel in Ireland. It's old but well maintained; classy but comfortable; fancy where it needs to be but relaxing where it should be. We went in for a coffee and ended up booking a room for the next night! We had a fantastic dinner, a wonderful night at the bar (met two older Irish women... More

When travelling to this part of Kerry there aren't many options- but you cannot do better than the Listowel Arms Hotel. We travelled with a big group- 15 people- and were on an extremely tight schedule that kept changing. However the management and staff at the hotel couldn't have been more accommodating to our myriad requests. They made sure our... More

We have never stayed here but often had lunch and dinner. In our opinion, this hotel has the best restaurant in Listowel because the staff is ever so nice and the food is good. Because they know us with years, we always feel welcome there. The staff, especially the senior lady waitresses are very friendly and professional and make us... More

Stayed 3 nights late October. My gorgeous room (with superb bathroom) overlooked the Square, to my delight, and my friends had an equally fab view of the river and racecourse. I remember The Arms from the late 70s, and it hasn't changed.....still an embracing, charming place. The Writers' Bar is fantastic....mellow lighting, excellent food, unspoiled Georgian detailing, (as throughout). Actually... More
