This simple, guided tour of this partial castle was very interesting. The gentleman that led our small group through was very knowledgeable and I learned a lot! If you don't have a lot of time and want to take some Irish /Castle history in this is perfect! Be prepared to climb a fair amount of good stairs ....

Took tour with 4 German people and another Irish couple. Tour guide Mike was great and tour itself was very interesting. Wonderful sights, but one needs to be able to climb stairs! Wold highly reccomend it

A free attraction designed to appeal to kids. Great views from the top. The guide was helpful and friendly. From there you can take the River Walk.

Listowel is a beautiful town. The information boards around the castle were very well laid out and contained a good amount of information. All that really remains of the castle is the front area, but the legible restoration by the OPW is top class.

Not much of the castle remains, but what does is worth the visit. Even better, the free tour is very interesting and worth doing. The tour was just the right length and the guide tailored it to keep our childrens' interest.

Really neat town center, the castle sits behind a beautiful church and there is a fascinating arts building where plays and activities are conducted...the castle in itself is not spectacular but the town center and other sites make it worth it
