This is so much more than its title suggests. The programme of events is amazingly varied and there really is something for everyone. There is parking immediately outside the building and Listowel is well served by shops, bars and restaurants so it's a whole day out. The hotel is within walking distance so you can stay the night too.

St. John's Art and Heritage Centre is located in the center of the Square in Listowel. There are often local plays, shows, or activities offered. It is a great museum like building filled with history and culture.

Was here for a one man show and turrly enjoyed myself. Not at all expensive and at the interlude there was refreshments served by Joe. Great place to watch a show. You feel like the person on stage is for you only. Very intimate. Recommended anyone in Listowel to give it a try, you won't be dissapointed.

Had a very entertaining night in the theatre. Young and old amateur actors doing a brilliant job! If you are around it's worth a visit! :-)

We did not enter this structure but used it as a meeting place for our group. There are benches outside which were great for people-watching

This is a really beautiful theatre situated in the middle of the square in Listowel. There wasn't a play on at the time but the staff let us look at the place and gave us a bit of history on the building.

Had a wonderful entertaining evening @ Blithe Spirit in the intimacy of St John's, perfect spot for such plays right in the centre of Listowel. At 1/2 time we all spilled out onto the square with our cup of coffee & glass of wine. Most pleasant & theatrical staff & the play was brilliant, props, acting, costumes & set. This... More

St. John's is a converted Church of Ireland place of worship which is used as a local theatre and arts center providing plays, musical gatherings and art exhibitions all at a very reasonable cost.

St Johns is a great venue for both Drama and Concerts and the Heritage Centre worth a visit too. There are sometimes art exhibitations too. The building itself is beautiful. Built as a Protestant church in 1819 it was restored and is central in the Square in Listowel.
