About Limerick

County Limerick is situated in the west of Ireland and has a real rural charm, gently undulating fertile valleys in the Golden Vale and the tidal estuary of the majestic River Shannon. It is the Gateway to the West of Ireland and is bordered by Counties Kerry, Cork, Tipperary and Clare. 

Limerick City is the third largest city in Ireland. This university town was founded by the Vikings on the banks of the River Shannon and has always been an important port and trading centre. The city has a wide variety of historical and cultural visitor attractions including, King John’s Castle and the Hunt Museum. Nature lovers will find solace in the tranquil Glenstal Abbey, with its serene lakes and lush greenery.

Beautiful towns and villages are dotted throughout the county such as rural Kilmallock, and Adare with its quaint thatched cottages and medieval church. 

The county is famous for horse racing and equestrian activities, also popular is the Ballyhoura Mountain Bike Trail. Foynes Flying Museum is the place where the first transatlantic flight departed from and where, it is said, the Irish coffee was invented. It is replaced by Shannon Airport, a transatlantic hub which provides easy air access from all over Europe and the USA.
