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.

- I stopped into St John's for a short while today during a quick visit to Limerick. It's a beautiful cathedral, cavernous inside with real serenity and character.
Beauful altar and statuary. It's just a gorgeous place to sit awhile and pray or contemplate.Written 4 March 2023
- Very nice park, welll-kept and beatiful lawns and flower beds. Nice for a brief rest or for eating a sandwich at lunchtime.Written 15 April 2023
- 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.Written 8 July 2019
- Ballyhoura Walk : July 2021
We are a group of 10 walkers ranging in ages from 28 to 68 and with varying degrees of fitness. Our aim was to walk from Liscarroll to Tipperary town on the Ballyhoura walking trail in three and half days. The walk is mostly well marked, challenging in parts but well worth the trip. We stayed in the Park Hotel in Charleville which I would highly recommend for their accommodation, food and friendliness.
Thursday afternoon: Liscarroll to Shinagh
This was a walk along quiet rural roads past the Donkey Sanctuary and through the quiet village of Churchtown. There is a grocery shop here, in a somewhat hidden location, where you can get coffee, ice-cream etc. As you leave Churchtown, you walk on a busy road for about 3km before reaching quiet roads again. The walk was 12km long and took 3hours approx for all to complete.
Friday; Shinagh to Ballyorgan
We left Shinagh, crossed the railway line and joined the main Cork road. We walked for about 500 metres towards Charleville along the side of the main road before taking a right turn onto a rural road. We walked uphill along the road until we reached a sign pointing to the right. This boreen was overgrown and impassable, so we continued along the road, taking the next right, all the time climbing. We re-joined the signposted way some time later at a left turn when we went off road and walked along forest roads. Take care not to miss a right turn with a barrier across it. We followed the signs, all the time climbing until we reached a sign pointing to the right up a steep stone path to Carrow Mountain. The views from up there were worth the effort. The path down was tough underfoot along scree initially and across heather covered ground where the path is not always obvious. We re-joined the forest roads near Philip’s castle and walked downhill to the Bike Trail Shop. A number of the walkers stopped here, the rest continued on to Glenosheen and from there to Ballyorgan. The walk was about 32km long and took about 8 hours. It was a most enjoyable hike but I wouldn’t recommend doing this walk on a wet day. Remember to bring food and water.
Saturday : Ballyorgan to Galbally
We left Ballyorgan and walked along the road for 2km before turning right and walking up hill along the edge of the forest all the time following the signs. We exited on to a rural road through farmland and into another forest where there we got great views of the surrounding landscape as we walked. There was a steep descent on to a busy road before arriving in Kilfinane where we got lunch. Leaving Kilfinane, we followed the road uphill for 1.5km before turning left onto a horse path, then a cut away forest and then along the edge of a forest. We descended into Ballylanders along rural roads and from Ballylanders to Galbally along a quiet road. The walk was 28km long approx. and took us 7 hours.
Sunday: Galbally to Tipperary
The rain poured down and unfortunately we had to abandon the walk but will return to complete it at a future date.
Summary: This is a great hike across varying terrain and with some outstanding views. A certain level of fitness is required but slow and steady will get you there.Written 22 July 2021
- This is a great place with lots of amazing
places to eat and shops to go too.I would also highly recommend Zumo it is a delicious smoothie bar in the shopping centreWritten 4 March 2023
- This precious church and its grounds are looked after by locals who clearly love and respect its meaning to them, as it's the sacred burial ground for Limerick's ancestors. There's a grave of a 4 year old child in there, its heartbreaking to know someone lost their baby. But some kind thoughtful soul has put toys on her grave, letting us know this child is still beautiful to themWritten 7 October 2023
- 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.Written 19 August 2020
- I came here to visit the church which my daughter is obsessed with ever since Netflix's Angela's Secret. I chatted with a lady from the church who offered me a prayer and safe travels.Written 26 June 2019
- A must do if you are in Limerick in my opinion. It's not that there is much to see, it's more the significance of it. It is a mounted block of limestone by the Shannon, it was the stone upon which the Treaty was reigned in 1609 to end the Siege of Limerick. It is located in a very picturesque place right by the Thomond Bridge over the Shannon facing King John's Castle. If you go to the castle you will learn a lot about the stone and the history of the city anyway and I think it would be a real pity for any visitor to miss this singular piece of history.Written 20 July 2020
- The beauty of Limerick is in the river Shannon, so do walk accross this bridge to get a good idea of the mighty river, really worthwhile.Written 15 April 2023
- My experience is personal and redeeming. Suffice it to say that I now go to confession in the Redemptorist Church frequently- a massive turn-about in my life for which I am most grateful. I would recommend anyone, no matter what their fears or imagined hopelessness to do as I did- try it out, you have nothing to lose- but will experience forgiveness, peace, contentment and a powerful release from guilt, despair, fear and doom. If I could do it- so can anyone.Written 28 February 2020
- Lunched here as a guest this week. Really good fish pie. Great location & nice surroundings with pleasant staffWritten 14 February 2020
