  • Great place to go to college. Few good bars on campus and the accommodation was OK. Bit cold in the winter and showers were dire.
  • Amazing campus, so many clubs and societies to choose from. Life science dept treated me very well in my time there. Javas aka the scholars do wicked coffee & food and there are some beautiful walks around the campus. Check out the living bridge at night, it's very pretty when it's lit up.
  • My dad left me here for 3 straight days. 2 stars.
  • Great place to get out of the car and go for a walk safe and scenic
  • A beautiful campus; colossal. The Living Bridge across the river Shannon provides opportunities to see wildlife. Worth a diversion if you are in Limerick.

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.
