Bars in Limerick

Flannerys - This bar is BIG. With two floors and plenty of big tunes through the state-of-the-art PA system you'll come here for dinner and end up staying well into the small hours.
Where? 17 Upper Denmark Street, Limerick

Ardhu Bar - This is where Limerick's young budding professionals come to let their hair down. The tables are fashioned from old beer barrels and the walls and floors are made of stone, evoking a kind of blend between the traditional Irish pub and the 21st century city bar. We'll take a Jameson's and coke please!
Where? Ennis Road, Limerick

Brimstone - A quick shuffle into Brimstone's 'Fire' bar and you're in cocktail paradise, there's a delicious array of alcoholic creations here alongside some of the best grilled eats in Limerick. We recommend the Southern Sun Set.

Sights & Sounds

Sights
Sights and Sounds in LimerickWhen it comes to medieval landmarks, there are none bigger or better than King John's Castle. This site has been recently redeveloped to bring the castle's stunning archaeology together with exciting modern technology, taking you back to a time where Irish Knights roamed the lands. Game of Thrones fans are sure to love this, and it's a great way to get the hungover hens out of the city for an afternoon!

Sounds
Dublin and Belfast might be better-known for their nightlife, but its common knowledge that it's Limerick that acts as the prototype for the big nights out in the Irish capitals. Crush 87 is a glamorous club of the TOWIE variety - we half expected Joey Essex to walk in complaining about Chloe Sims before we hit the floor!
Icon is seriously funky, and it's pretty easy to get lost in the swarm of visually arresting neon lights that cover the walls and bar areas. Couple the amazing surroundings with a great clubbing atmosphere and you won't want to leave!

What's on in Limerick

In the Diary

Top of the Shops

Best Shops in Limerick

Limerick has been quietly making fashion statements for years now; we aren't saying that upon landing in Ireland you're going to think you've made some terrible mistake by boarding a plane to Paris instead, but the Irish lassies certainly dress to impress. Don't worry though, although you'll probably never be able to enchant men with your Oirish brogue, you'll certainly be able to look the part...

The Edge Clothing Company - This stylish boutiques selection of tops and dresses ranges from the casual to the breath-taking!
Where? The Milk Market, Cornmarket Row

Tippe Canoe - Dress for LA...In Limerick!?! This designer boutique might be bijou, but there are threads here that wouldn't look out of place in a certain Miss Kardashian's wardrobe.
Where? 25 Thomas Street, Limerick

Crescent Shopping Centre - Just two miles from the packed city centre, Crescent has all the usual high-street suspects including a few fast-food options if all this shopping is making your tummies rumble.
Where? Dooradoyle, Limerick

Girls About Town - Getting around Limerick...

This Irish town is best explored on foot, but believe us; we understand the pain of stumbling around town in a concentrated effort to break in a new pair of shoes that will be fabulous once you've worn them well. For those trickier moments, there are 12 bus routes than run the length and breadth of the city that you can get on free of charge for the cost of a Leap Card.
However, for hens who prefer two wheels to four, a Coca Cola Zero Bike is always an efficient way to scale the city!
