Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We had read about this small musuem housed in the historic Customs House, and it did not disappoint. Our only regret is that we could have spent far more time there than we had. Highly recommnded.

    The atmosphere was incredible. Respect for opponents and massive support for the home side. A great sporting venue

    Great space for a gallery. Very serene and great light in most of the rooms. Peaceful most of the time on a Sunday anyway and right next to the park so the kids can go mad afterwards. Swanzy exhibition was excellent as was Ryan (what is that white dog/llama). O'Dwyer was waaaay over my head. Very abstract. Kids thought it was mad but good to expose them to different versions of Art.

    We spent about an hour in the Limerick City Museum. Its small but comprehensive exhibits about the city’s industrial and social past in particular were very well done. It’s free to enter and provides an interesting background to Limerick.

    Gallery highlights the depth and breadth of talent of the artist. The artist also teaches classes at the galley, which I found enjoyable and insightful. The gallery is housed in storied Mungret college, which overlooks Mungret village. There is a coffee shop adjacent to gallery where one can enjoy tea and fresh pastries.

    We spotted mention of this town in a small brochure, on a whim decided to visit. Well worth our while. We saw the Blossom Gate at the end of the street, as we turned to head to the Friary we saw the little museum. The gentleman on duty gave us a great potted history of the town. We really appreciated the time he spent with us.
    We visited both the Friary and Church with far more knowledge.
    He even gave us a tip for a cafe, which served lovely scones

    Would recommend visiting this town

    The Heritage Centre provides lots of information with its displays and artefacts from the German Palatine settlements in Ireland in the 1700's, the changes that the Palatines brought to Ireland and lives of these people. Padraig was extremely helpful and provided additional information from his local knowledge of the area. A visit is recommended for anyone visiting the area who is interested in history / agriculture / migration. A very unique aspect of Ireland's colourful history.

    Visit the University of Limerick's Self portrait art gallery if you're in the mood to appreciate art of a difference. As you enter the Concert hall you'll find beautiful murals with Irish sayings taking you back to the medieval period. The World Irish academy has lunch and evening performances which are free. Some performances are by the music students. You'll be enthralled by the mystical Irish music.

    The stone hall is a farm with so many different animals, you will be amazed! From cats sitting with hens, ostrich, peacocks, birds of prey, so many varieties, its a great afternoon for any age group. Wear comfortable shoes as there are plenty of walks and pretty Forest to see.

    Suitable from kids to old..............Extremely educational and highly recommended ................Based in different venues around Limerick City................The old milk factory is a must................Learnt so much about how Ireland actually sent "somebody" off to Finland (if I`m correct) to source trees for our electricity poles back then..........The artists captured it perfectly...........well done to them!
    Plus elsewhere in our world there are pics of landscapes destroyed forever because of electricity advancement ...................In the Limerick City Gallery itself (Perry Square...........) there are large overwhelming photo`s conveying the corruption in Africa....................
    I truly HIGHLY RECOMMEND this EVA event for all....................Anybody can connect to this event in a way.............OPEN YOUR MIND!!! Chance to meet artists from all over the world also...............And guess what..........The artists are normal human beings like us all..............They actually will talk to anybody which I love...............ART IS FOR ALL REMEMBER!!!

    Highly recommended visit to this beautiful Cottage on the banks of the Maigue river in the village of Bruree. For anyone interested in vintage costumes and theatrical memorabilia of Touring Shows this unusual Museum is a must. The location is lovely as it is in a scenic part of the village with views of the bridge- the old church- the castle and the De Valera museum.

    The National Self Portrait Collection of Ireland University of Limerick is situated in close proximity to the National Watercolour Collection in the Atrium of the University of Limerick Concert Hall Building.

    The two attractions can be viewed in tandem.
