Limerick has a pace and dynamism you’ll find almost nowhere else in Ireland. Situated on the majestic River Shannon, Limerick City is a vibrant hub of education, economic, social and recreational activity in Ireland’s Mid-West region.
Limerick is commonly referred to as ‘Ireland’s Sporting Capital’ and while we are the economic core of Ireland’s Mid-West, we are also widely known for our warmth and home-town feel.
Few regions offer the magical blend of city and county quite like Limerick. Famed for the friendliness of it’s people and with a whole host of superb accommodation options, family fun festivals, exciting arts and cultural events and attractions, Limerick has something for everyone to enjoy!
In the city centre the medieval glories of King’s Island sit comfortably alongside modern pedestrian plazas lined with colourful boutiques, upmarket hotels, legendary pubs and nightclubs and award-winning restaurants and cafes. The city’s environs are also home to some fantastic sights including neolithic Lough Gur, Ballyhoura Country, Foynes, the birthplace of the Irish Coffee, and Adare, whose thatched cottages and medieval churches make it Ireland’s prettiest village.
