On your doorstep there is Listowel Castle -one of the best examples of Anglo-Norman architecture in Kerry. It was built in the 15th century by the FitzMaurices and became the last bastion against Queen Elizabeth 1 in the First Desmond Rebellion. The castle stands on a elevation on a steep bank, overlooking the river Feale, above the location of a strategic ford. A substantial part of the front of the castle survives, consisting of two large square towers of four stories, standing almost to the original height of 15.3 metres, connected by a wall of the same height and linked together by an arch on one side. Guided tours are available.
