Limerick has a truly authentic culture and identity. It combines its rich past with all the attributes of a modern cosmopolitan city – vibrancy, innovation, diversity, and resilience.
It is recognised far and wide as a sporting mecca, home to the All-Ireland Hurling Champions and Munster Rugby, teams that embody the best qualities of its city and its people. It also boasts the world class Sports Campus at the University of Limerick and The Limerick Racecourse. If history and heritage capture your interest, Limerick’s Georgian Quarter, built in the late 18th and early 19th century, defines the city centre to this day. The Hunt Museum consistently attracts praise for its superb collections of art and antiquities housed in one of Limerick’s finest Georgian houses.
Limerick’s medieval past is visible with King John’s Castle, Bunratty Castle and Craggaunowen Heritage Parks amongst the city’s many other attractions. It has a buzzing social scene with award winning restaurants and bars, music and arts festivals and an abundance of eclectic shops.
