Car Hire Limerick City

The capital of the mid-west region of Ireland, Limerick is a thriving modern city which still retains it's medieval heritage.  Almost 50% of the population of the city are under 30 years old, partly down to it's university and college, but also because there is so much going on here in this vibrant city.

Limerick Mini Guide

Limerick city is the capital of County Limerick and there is much of the local history and heritage to be found here. In the centre of the city is King John's Castle, the area's most iconic landmark, this is to be found on an island in the heart of the medieval part of the city. For some slightly more modern history why not visit St. John's Cathedral, this classic example of Victorian Gothic architecture is where you find Ireland's tallest church spire at 163 feet high. If it's the rugby season during your visit you could take in a match and watch Munster play, if not there is still the interactive museum at Thomond Park Stadium to take a look behind the scenes and explore the heritage of this very proud Irish rugby club.

The Pulitzer prize winning author Frank McCourt is one of Limerick's most famous sons and you will find a walking tour of the city, featuring many places mentioned in the book leaving the Limerick tourist office every afternoon. There is also the Frank McCourt and Leamy Art Gallery which is dedicated to the author and where you can find out more about his life and works.

As with most university cities, Limerick is teeming with nightlife, there is everything here from traditional Irish pubs to cocktail bars and night clubs, in many of the pubs you will find live music all making for a great night out. There is also a vast array of restaurants offering cuisine from all over the world, along with the traditional Irish fare, many of which have won awards for their excellent food and hospitality.

The modern side to Limerick hosts large shopping centres with every opportunity for some retail therapy, although there are also smaller independent boutiques and artisan shops in the city.  One spot of retail therapy you mustn't miss is the Limerick Milk Market where you will find an excellent selection of local produce including farmhouse cheeses and freshly caught fish.

Just outside the city you will find some of the most picturesque scenery in Ireland and also what is supposed to be Ireland's prettiest village - Adare, just 11 miles from the city centre. There is Limerick race course if you fancy trying your luck or spectacular championship golf courses if that is more your thing. If you're hiring a car and wish to explore the area around Limerick more fully, then you can take in the N69 driving route which takes you from Limerick to Tarbert in County Kerry, a distance of only 58 miles, but passing through some stunning landscapes along the way.
