The construction date of the earliest castle at Listowel dates to the 13th Century but the present castle was probably built in the 15th Century by the FitzMaurices. The castle stands on an elevation on a steep bank, overlooking the river Feale, above the location of a strategic ford in Listowel town center. A substantial part of the front of the castle survives consisting of two large, square towers of four storeys, standing almost to the original height of 15.3 m (50.5 ft), connected by a wall of the same height and linked together by an arch on one side.

A major program of conservation works has been undertaken at the castle including the provision of an external staircase to allow public access to the upper levels.

The castle is accessible by guided tour only which takes around 40 minutes.
