    There once was a mighty king John,
    Built a castle and then he was gone.
    He was Limerick's best,
    And was never a pest,
    But these days he could catch Omicron.

    This is a real hidden gem and I'm sorry I didn't go sooner.
    What a fabulous place to bring your kids.
    It's very small but they sure have made use of every corner and worked it into a winding trail which makes it feel bigger.
    Lovely little hobbit house with free refreshments and an amazing giftshop! Wow so much beautiful stuff.

    Always love visiting Lough Gur and have done for many years.
    It's a fab place.
    However I wouldn't reccomend the museum as it is overpriced for how small it is.
    Just visit Lough Gur grounds are free and plenty to see.
    They now have a coffee van there which is a nice addition.
    You use to he able to go kayaking not sure if they are still operating? Shame as that was a cool.activity on the lake.

    Lovely location not far from the city centre for a walk around. We took the 304 bus from the city to the university and it only took 15 mins over and 30 minutes back. Enjoyable walks with plenty of families and dogs around! Will absolutely go back

    What a lovely place! Some great food stalls, good butchers, nice fresh produce. The stall holders were friendly and knowledgeable.

    Mostly under cover but with some overflow stalls in nearby streets.

    Please be aware that the market proper is on Saturdays. I see some people gave only one star because they turned up on the wrong day!

    Go on Saturday and you won’t be disappointed.

    Note this is sometimes referred to as the Limerick Food Market, but it is situated at the Milk Market.

    It would have attracted 5 stars but there is no provision for dogs and their owners wanting to actually sit down and eat at a food market…. Hmmm

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

    This is a really nice family camping park. Pitches are spacious and nice and flat. Lots of lovely walks in area and coffee shop on site was a big plus.

    The flowers were really beautiful and our Tour Guide also told us a bit of history about the park which made it even more appealing.

    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.

    After being treated to a fantastic breakfast at our hotel, it was time to walk it off. What better way to explore Limerick than from the view points along the Shannon River. We headed down stream along the Bishop's Quay and then cross the river over the Shannon Bridge. Turning upstream on the other side, we moseyed along the O'Callaghan Strand and past Sarsfield Bridge to continue up Clancy's Strand to cross Thomond Bridge. Cross the bridge, toward the majestic King John's Castle, and then back toward the downtown. Beautiful day, beautiful river, beautiful scenery. Costs nothing, I certainly recommend that you give it a go.

    No trip to Limerick is complete without a visit to see the statue of O’Connell after which the street is named. Good reference point.

    I've been to Delta with my two younger children multiple times. Five years ago this place wasn't so bad. As the business has gotten bigger and grown in size, it's simply not as nice. It needs more cleaning, areas need fixing and the heat needs to be turned on more frequently. I found the area for younger children too small. The outdoor area hasn't been open the last few times we went.

    Overall, this plays needs updating and fixing. Indoor play spaces are great for kids especially given Ireland's weather, but I can't rationalize paying this price for a place that isn't offering a service worth that price anymore.
