About Limerick

Ireland's third largest city, Limerick combines urban amenities with an innate friendliness - a mix that guarantees an attractive and welcoming environment for student living. With a rich history that dates back to the 9th century, it quickly charms modern visitors with its riverside ambiance and eclectic attractions: from the 13th Century King John's Castle and the Treaty Stone to its charming old pubs, glossy shops, and boutique hotels. And for a timeless treat, there's always the Hunt Museum which houses more than 2,000 works of art, including pieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Renoir and Picasso.
