Listowel's principal hotel is a family-run affair in a Georgian building that balances grandeur with country charm. Furnished with antiques and marble sinks, the 42 rooms overlook the river. The Writers Bar is a good place to find music in the summer, while the Georgian Restaurant (mains €13-22) specialises in the catch of the day.
