King John’s Castle, Limerick City Centre

Founded by the Vikings more than a thousand years ago, the City of Limerick is magnificently sited on one of Europe’s finest rivers, the Shannon. In 1197, the City was granted a charter by John, Earl of Morton who later became King of England. He was responsible for the subsequent building of King John’s Castle in 1210. Today, it is viewed as one of the finest examples of fortified Norman architecture in Ireland. Presently, the castle is home to a major interpretative centre.

Other important city landmarks include the Treaty Stone where the treaty ending the siege of 1691 was reputedly signed, St Mary’s Cathedral (c. 1194), which incorporates elements of both Gothic and Romanesque architectural styles and the much later St. John’s Cathedral completed in 1859 which is a fine example of Gothic architecture. The City is home to several important museums and galleries including Limerick City Museum, the Hunt Museum, and the City Art Gallery. The City Museum is dedicated to presenting the city through the ages, from the Stone Age to the recent past. 

The Hunt Museum, located in the Custom House, is based upon an extremely impressive collection of antiques and fine objects that were bequeath to the State by the Hunt Family. 

Limerick is an ideal base from which to explore both the South and the West Coast of Ireland. 

Limerick has a long list of attractions and exciting activities for people of all ages and interests. Visit Limerick

Limerick is also the gateway to Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. The Wild Atlantic Way on Ireland’s west coast leads you through one of the world’s most dramatic coastal landscapes, a landscape on the edge of Europe that has shaped the development of its people, communities and settlements, a landscape that has inspired its own particular language, literature, art, song and dance. It’s a place of many natural features – seascapes, sea-life, cliffs, mountains, glens, loughs, trails and pathways. It’s a place to experience nature at its wildest, a place to explore the history of the Gaels and their religion; a place to experience great events, great food and drink, great music and the craic.
