Listowel International Storytelling Festival

17th September @ 5:00 pm - 19th September @ 6:00 pm


Listowel International Storytelling Festival is relatively new to Listowel’s festival calendar with the inaugural festival held in 2019.

An initiative of Kerry Writers’ Museum, the festival brings together a wealth of Irish and international storytellers and musicians. It takes place in mid-September each year, as the seasons change with long nights drawing families and friends around the hearth, inspired by the Irish Rambling House tradition and its sense of togetherness – a community gathering full of tales, recitations, music, songs and ballads.

Performance, workshops, spoken word, music sessions and children’s events radiate out from the Kingdom’s cultural capital, as the best of Kerry’s storytelling talent merge with invited global guests, offering locals and visitors an opportunity to celebrate and discover oral traditions and cultural diversity.

Listowel International Storytelling Festival 2021 which takes place from September 17th to 19th, has been developed by the festival Artistic Director and Kerry Writers’ Museum’s Storyteller in Residence, Maria Gillen.  Guests include visiting storytellers Colum Sands, Órla McGovern and Colin Urwin who will be joined by local storytellers Frances Kennedy & Sonny Egan, poet Gabriel Fitzmaurice and legendary singer/songwriter Mickey MacConnell.
