From urban markets to five-star manors, mountain-biking to the red beating heart of Munster Rugby, Limerick is the perfect match of city and county.
Set at the mouth of the Shannon, Limerick city is the third-largest on the island. It’s a lively city bubbling with beautiful Georgian architecture, grand museums and rugby-obsessed locals. One moment, you’re wandering through the Middle Ages at King John’s Castle. The next, you’re in a rejuvenated Milk Market. One minute you’re amongst old Georgian townhouses. Then, you’re sipping cocktails in a five-star hotel.
There’s no way to categorise Limerick city, and the locals wouldn’t have it any other way.
