Blogging Listowel's Literary Scene

Accommodation in Listowel (3)

I’m sorted. Got a phone call this morning from Listowel to say I can stay with the couple who put me up in 2007.

I must have done something right. The universe is looking after me, eh.

This is so much better than staying with someone new, and staying out in Abbeyfeale.

I’ll be able to drink freely, and toddle home late at night after those sessions with George Rowley

in the New Kingdom Bar.

If you still haven’t sorted out your B&B in Listowel, don’t worry: the universe will look after you – pick up the phone to Norella Moriarty now.

I’ve just been talking to an absolutely fantastic woman.

Norella Moriarty is “accommodation officer” for the festival. I rang her because I haven’t yet solved my accommodation challenge.

I’ve been so focussed on the blog that I’ve neglected to sort out where I’m staying.

If only I’d rung Norella a fortnight ago… She has people crossing the street to avoid her – she’s been so active finding beds.

Fortunately all is not lost.

I’ve found the phone number of great couple that put me up in 2007. Left a message. Fingers and toes crossed.

There’s always Abbeyfeale, and a registered B&B @ Park Lodge (068 31312). If all else fails, I’ll try Abbeyfeale and admire the river.
