The small village of Lixnaw, which means 'swimming flagstones' in Irish, is set in the heart of rural north Kerry, and offers a shop and a pub. There is also an unusual Korean War Memorial, which pays tribute to the brave soldiers from Ireland who lost their lives fighting for the US in the Korean War. The Ceolann in the village is a centre which incorporates a theatre, music shop and a museum/library. The traditional town of Listowel, 5 miles from Lixnaw, has much to offer visitors, including a wide variety of top quality shops, award-winning restaurants, attractive streetscapes and a golf club. The surrounding area offers horse riding, walking, angling, tennis and a selection of festivals held throughout the year, while the Kerry coastline, including the beach at Ballybunion, is not to be missed.
