  • Drove through the campas, very modern and functional. Easy to get around. Walked from the carpark, through the grounds, and along the river path. Sunny day which made it very enjoyable.  more »
  • The grounds and architecture of the campus are beautiful. A mixture between older buildings and modern architecture. It would be a nice place to go for a walk. It is also a good venue for concerts etc...  more »
  • A beautiful campus with traditional architecture and technology tips. All the services that a student or a student could want. By bus around. Study and meeting places and pubs, restaurants and athletics. A nice pleasant campus.

  • 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. Here you'll find plenty of hotels, hostels, and other lodgings that work for any budget. 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.
