Welcome to Limerick

Atlantic Edge, European Embrace – Limerick, where our edge has been sharpened as much by harsh Atlantic winds as by the tough trials of history. At the edge of the Shannon where the river meets the ocean there is a city on an island – Limerick!

Limerick sits in an enviable position, boasting some of the best connections across Ireland and beyond to Europe, the USA and the rest of the world. But this geographical position amounts to more than a mere grid reference on a map. Limerick offers energy, excitement, grit and limitless possibilities from its Atlantic location combined with the timeless, creative and hospitable character of Europe.
