Limerick

Founded by Vikings over a thousand years ago, Limerick sits at the head of the Shannon River's broadening estuary. A city of contrasts, this urban center manages to blend the modern with the historical, its medieval and Georgian buildings housing hip bars, restaurants, shops, museums, and theaters. In addition to the tallest cathedral spire in Ireland, the city also boasts one of the best-preserved Norman castles in Europe, built in the 13th century. A city of art and culture, Limerick made a significant contribution to 20th-century literature, inspiring the works of internationally recognized writers Frank McCourt and Maureen Sparling. Meet the city's friendly natives by attending a Gaelic football game. Limerick is in County Limerick. To arrange what you want to do in Limerick, use our Ireland trip planner .

Where to stay in Limerick

Enjoy top attractions and vibrant nightlife by staying in a hotel or smaller accommodations in Limerick's city center. The central area is not only the most convenient option, but also the safest option for tourists.

If you like to steer clear of the constant buzz of the city, opt for a bed and breakfast or guesthouse in the countryside surrounding the city; avoid the town's outskirts.
