3 pm: Check-in at Clayton Hotel Limerick
Drop off your bags and check-in at Clayton Hotel Limerick, Ireland’s tallest hotel. You’re in for a fun-filled 24 hours. After a warm welcome from our team, you’ll get your first glimpse of the stunning views from your room. From the heights, you’ll see the famous River Shannon, the three bridges, and the city you are about to explore. Enjoy our leisure centre during your stay and relax in our steam room, jacuzzi and sauna before your girls’ night out.
4 pm: Treat Yourself
Bellissimo Limerick, one of Ireland’s best-known salons, is located a 3-minute walk away from the hotel, and you get an exclusive discount when you stay with us. So, treat yourself to a rejuvenating facial or a fresh wash and blow-dry and get your glam on for the girls’ night ahead.
6 pm: Did someone say cocktails?
Start your girls’ night out with some delicious cocktails overlooking the River Shannon and Limerick City. We have an extensive drinks menu and a fun environment at the Grill Bar and Restaurant.
8 pm: Food, Glorious Food
Relax and unwind, or keep the drinks flowing as you dine from our mouth-watering menu curated by our head chef using fresh locally sourced ingredients. Perhaps you’ll choose the Thai red curry or maybe the Sirloin Steak at our Waterfront restaurant.
9 am: Make for the Milk Market
Wondering what to do in Limerick first thing in the morning? Start your day with Clayton’s signature Vitality Breakfast, then we recommend you head to The Milk Market. Nowhere harnesses Limerick’s energy and charm like our historic Milk Market, with some of Ireland’s finest food producers and crafters under one roof. Bring a bag to stock up on the ‘essential’ snacks to fuel you while you explore – think homemade fudge and chocolate!
11 am: See Limerick from a new perspective
Kayaking on the river has been voted as one of the best things to do in Limerick. Have a laugh with your friends while navigating your way along the river, taking in the views of the majestic King John’s Castle and all the wildlife. All the while working up your appetite for a well-deserved lunch.
2 pm: Lunch at the Locke
Limerick’s best burger! Popular with the locals, The Locke Gastro Pub is right on the riverside, with wood panelling, an open fire and a great atmosphere and serves top-rated food including the recent Locke Bar Burger that went viral during lockdown!
3 pm: Stroll the streets
The Limerick Fashion Quarter caters to your every fashion need with a range of boutiques and unique stores. Located in the Roches Street and Catherine Street area you can expect to find a wealth of stores selling high fashion clothing and quirky accessories! The People’s Park (home to sculptures and a bandstand), as well as a stroll through the city’s heart, O’Connell Street, are worthy of a visit also. Ramble the shops and pick up a coffee before your journey home – we recommend an independent coffee shop like Rift or Habit Coffee. All of these amazing places and activities are just some of the reasons why Limerick is the perfect destination for your girls’ night away.
