Travelodge Ireland and the historical city of Limerick.

Historic Limerick

With its enviable location on the banks of the river Shannon, Limerick is a lovely city to visit on a short break or as part of a longer holiday touring the west of Ireland. It’s only a fifteen minute drive from Shannon airport so it’s easy to get to and there are plenty cheap hotels to choose from  – check out http://www.travelodge.ie/hotels/book/Limerick-hotels for some great deals on centrally located beds. While you’re in town you’ll enjoy just wandering around soaking up the atmosphere, but don’t miss these must-see historic sights.

King John’s Castle

This castle, which dominates the landscape in the heart of the medieval city, may be over 800 years old, but its brand new visitor centre and interactive activities mean it’s a tourist attraction that’s brought the distant past firmly into the 21st century. After you’ve immersed yourself in Limerick’s war torn history, you can enjoy lunch complemented by peaceful views of the River Shannon in the café.

Lough Gur Heritage Centre

Another visitor attraction that has benefited from a recent investment project, Lough Gur is well worth making the short trip from the city centre for. This mysteriously beautiful lake has 6000 years of history surrounding it and the new heritage centre does a great job of telling its long and fascinating story from the Neolithic age right up to the present day.

The Hunt Museum

This grand building on the banks of the River Shannon is an essential stop-off on your sightseeing tour of Limerick. It’s a fantastic treasure trove of history – highlights include art by Picasso and Renoir and a wonderful jewellery gallery, which boasts the Mary Queen of Scots Cross.

 

These are just a few of the fascinating places you’ll come across on your sightseeing tour of this ancient and enchanting city. Don’t forget to pack your camera for amazing, step-back-in-time, snaps.
