General information about
County Limerick

The county of Limerick is located at the south-west of Ireland, where the Shannon river widens before running into the Atlantic. This county has a particularly rich history which marks its landscape and its inheritance, with its castles, its old museums and its walls. Indeed, the town of Limerick has many museums and art galleries - the museum of hunting, the collection of self-portraits at the University of Limerick and Limerick city museum itself.

The rural charm and quiet of its slightly undulating landscapes, which characterizes the County is in contrast to the beauty of its cities: Castleconnell on the Shannon or Adare, with its old houses with the thatched roofs and its medieval churches.

This county also offers golf, fishing, horseriding and many other sports of interest.
