– Listowel International Storytelling Festival


September 14 – 17, 2023

Join us this September for the 5th annual Listowel International Storytelling Festival.

Our 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.

Thursday September 14th to Sunday September 17th 2023.
