County Limerick sits in Ireland’s southwest. Beside the Shannon Estuary, the city of Limerick is home to the 13th-century King John’s Castle, on an island in the river. Nearby, the Hunt Museum displays a vast collection of art and antiquities in the old customs house. Southeast of here, archaeological sites like the Grange Stone Circle dot the countryside around Lough Gur, in the Ballyhoura Mountains.
Did you know: Limerick is the eighth-most-populous Irish county by population (195,175).
Whether you're splurging or on a shoe-string budget, Limerick is a treasure trove of sights to see and things to do!
The Hunt Museum is a must see for both tourists and locals!

Limerick has no shortage of parks and green spaces, and the People's Park in the city centre is the perfect spot for a picnic! With the hustle and bustle of the city just beyond the tree-lined fences, the park is a charming place to spend a day featuring a playground and wonderful display of flowers during the summer!
After your picnic in the park make sure to visit Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA), one of the leading contemporary art galleries in Ireland, conveniently located in the historic Carnegie Building in the People's Park! Located in the 19th century, Georgian styled Pery Square, the Gallery is almost 70 years old, open since 1948. The Gallery is home to an important collection of Irish 18th to 21st-century art in all media, amounting to over 831 works. It's also one of the many venues for EVA International 2016, Ireland’s biennial of contemporary art, running until 17th July 2016. Open seven days a week and admission is FREE!
Lough Gur is a magical and mysterious place that is rich in folklore along with a wealth of archaeology and history dating back to Stone Age times. Enjoy the rural unspoilt beauty by taking a walk along the lake or simply sit back and enjoy the view!
