Location:Limerick is a small, unique city of 80,000 people located on Ireland's west coast. It's historic, yet modern in its architecture, industry, and ambiance. Georgian cathedrals and castles contrast with recently built high-rises. Residents treasure Limerick for its laid-back atmosphere, rich history, beautiful castles, and diverse population.

Walk the streets of Limerick to get a real taste of Irish culture. Enjoy the up-and-coming riverfront scene, fantastic museums, and the city's proximity to the natural beauty of Ireland’s west coast. During your time in Limerick, you may become a die-hard rugby fan (the city’s favorite sport). For an authentic experience, cheer on Munster at Thomond Park alongside the locals. Traditional pubs are scattered throughout the city, where you can hear Irish fiddlers play their tunes at night.

The city is renowned as a center for excellence in technology. It's home to the National Technology Park and to many international technology firms. Limerick is also known for its playwrights and actors, and there are always theatrical events to attend. In the surrounding countryside, you'll discover peaceful farmland dotted with the remains of hundreds of castles.

Conveniently located only 20km from Shannon Airport, Limerick makes travel affordable and easy. Your options are endless, including visiting Dublin, flying to continental Europe, or driving up the coast to see the Cliffs of Moher. The University of Limerick is located just outside of town. Transportation to and from the city is quick, so you'll always be connected.
