Listowel Races in September - places to stay nearby

Hello everone - we are working on itinerary for Ireland trip in September. We love horse racing and are hoping to make it to the Listowel Races on September 12th. Does anyone have any feedback on places to stay in or around Listowel and also on the races? Are there some good pubs in Listowel or should we try to stay in nearby town?

Thanks so much:)

Listowel is a lovely town and very busy during the races. This is a link to Listowel Writers Week. www.writersweek.ie/2010/information.html. If you ring the lady who looks after accomodation, I am sure she will help you out. She has her own B&B which a friend of mine stays at every year for Writers Week and is very happy there. Listowel has great pubs and good reataurants for a small town. I'd ring Norella sooner rather than later as it is a popular meeting.

Listowel Races are well worth a visit and Listowel itself is a great town. The Arms is the local hotel and overlooks the race course but can be very pricey arond the time of the races. There are lots of B and Bs in and around Listowel and in Ballybunion . Best to get booking soon as race week is very busy.
