Explore and Discover Limerick/West Coast of Ireland

Limerick has a fascinating past and stunning countryside. The city is based in the Shannon Region, on Ireland’s breathtaking West Coast. It is a vibrant place of culture and “craic” (fun), little secrets, and famous locals.

Discover Limerick by strolling along the historic streets on the edge of the River Shannon.

Visit St. John’s Cathedral, the county’s most iconic landmark.

The Region is the gateway to the Wild Atlantic Way, which offers visitors a chance to see the longest defined coastal driving route in the world, and to take in the amazing Irish landscape.
