Limerick is in the south-west and the Republic of Ireland’s third largest city (after Dublin and Cork) with approximately 100.000 inhabitants.
Limerick was not a pretty town in 1980. It looked a little run down and there was a lot of rubbish left on the streets. It looked poor. Frank McCourt’s book “Angela’s ashes” was very recognizable.
Luckily the face of the town changed; Year by year the city improved; the shopping streets were modernized, the banks along the Shannon got nice walking paths and the council kept the city clean. Now, thirty years later Limerick is a town well worth visiting if you are in that part of the country. If you would like to see a large Irish town and observe the Irish in their daily lives, Limerick city center is the place to be. The city always seems to be busy, the numerous pubs and restaurants are always full of people.
You would probably rate Limerick as an oversized provincial town with a lively center, the odd touristic attraction (King John’s castle) a large university campus with the natural beauty of the river Shannon flowing through it.
The center of town has almost everything a city should have: hotels, shopping malls, boutiques, pharmacies, opticians, book shops, musea, an art gallery, parking areas, car rentals, cinema, theater, and lots of pubs and restaurants. The outskirts and estates usually have shopping areas and local pubs although some estates have neither of the two.
In 2009 a brand new stadium in Thomond park was opened, the home of Munster Rugby. Besides the rugby competitions it also hosts concerts of the world’s leading musicians. The stadium towers over the local housing estate as a sort of symbol for ‘old and new’. The only things you will find missing in Limerick is a store that sells decent/sufficient art materials and general knowledge where to go for a swim.
Limerick is close to Shannon Airport. It was easy to fly there until 2010 when the government unfortunately (for the tourists and the economy in the west of Ireland) decided that all international flights should go through Dublin airport. To ‘fly’ to Limerick is now only possible via Cork or Dublin, taking the bus or train for further transport or one of the inland flights that still go to Shannon Airport.
Limerick has a great love for rugby.
