About Limerick

Limerick is home to an eclectic cultural scene and was designated the first ever National City of Culture in 2014. Limerick is also synonymous with sport, with the 'spiritual home' of Munster Rugby, Thomond Park Stadium, just outside of the city centre. Gaelic football, hurling, golf, horse-racing, rowing and cycling are also particularly popular pursuits in Limerick. Limerick is extremely proud to have been awarded the prestigious title of European City of Sports 2011.

Limerick is a sophisticated and cosmopolitan city but it has often been said that perhaps Limerick’s biggest attraction of all is the people themselves who are warm, witty and welcoming! (Info via Limerick.ie)
