A TOWN FULL OF CULTURE AND GEORGIAN ARCHITECTURE
Limerick is an old city nestled at the mouth of the River Shannon, where it meets with the Atlantic Ocean.
As one of the important cities in Ireland, Limerick is truly a must-visit! Packed with attractions, the city is also a thriving cultural hub that you should experience.
Limerick was named the first City of Culture in Ireland, highlighting its outstanding character. The beautiful local architecture, love of sports (especially rugby!) and world-renowned attractions are only some of the reasons for this title.
The city centre is compact and easy to visit. Make sure to keep an eye out for the medieval St Mary’s Cathedral and St John’s Square. For some art, don’t miss the Hunt Museum or the Limerick City Gallery of Art.
This historic city has distinctive Georgian features. Take a step back in time by visiting Limerick’s Georgian Quarter. Admire the 200-year-old townhouses and experience afternoon tea in peaceful luxury.
For a truly Irish experience, why not snuggle up in a local pub with a pint to listen to traditional music?
You can also visit King John’s Castle, dating back to 1210. Overlooking the River Shannon, the castle is one of Limerick’s most recognisable landmarks.View Shannon & Tipperaray
