Limerick, sitting on the banks of the River Shannon, is Ireland’s first ever City of Culture. Best known as the city of Frank McCourt's "Angela’s Ashes", the Limerick of today is peppered with galleries amidst elegantly crumbling Georgian architecture. The city of rugby also has a thriving street art scene, a lively festival schedule, and a crossroads tailor-made for foodies in the Milk Market.
