Limerick City Mini Guide

The fame of Limerick proceeds it as Ireland has a very lyrical tradition and Limerick is a special Irish rhyming verse. This is one of the largest cities in the Republic of Ireland and the main city of the county of Limerick.

About 1 million people live along the banks of the River Shannon which also incorporates a series of islands and an estuary. Transportation is very good as there are a lot of excellent roads and various bridges which cross the water.

That said hiring a car in Limerick is an ideal way to get around and also see a bit of what Limerick has to offer.  You can also go further afield within the province of Munster and to the cities of Cork and Galway.

If you are planning to fly in then head to the nearby Shannon Airport where we can offer cars for the short 15 minute journey into Limerick.

There are lots of places of interest including various old buildings. St Mary's Cathedral and King John's Castle are both very popular with tourists and you may wish to advance book any tours.

Top Irish rugby team Munster play their home games in the city and if you're a rugby fan they are a team worth watching.

Limerick is divided into the English town and the Irish town as far as sightseeing is concerned.

Because the famous novel Angela's Ashes was written in Limerick there are walking tours where you can see the sites mentioned in the book. We also offer cars with unlimited mileage and free breakdown assistance for business travel if you are heading to the economic centre in Newtown Pery.

Famous for being the home of the Irish rhyme, Limerick is a top tourist attraction in the Republic of Ireland. There are many important monuments to see in Limerick and literary buffs can even take a tour of the city which is based on the novel Angela’s Ashes.

So much is tourism a part of the Limerick economy that local people are appointed as street ambassadors whose duty it is to show visitors around. However you will not need a guide to see the more obvious attractions which include the  St Mary Cathedral and King Johns Castle.
