Dear ttChet, thank you for your very kind words, our local art works, of which most are for sale, add to the delights of our permanent collection.
Do you know that one of the 30 pieces of silver Judas was paid id reputed to be among the collection. Also some very fine paintings of local areas from times past. I particularly like the the painting of the Kilmallock countryside. One piece that would do well to be returned to Limerick is the Ardagh Chalice and this musuem would be a fitting place for its display.
Dear Con, we would love to have the Ardagh Chalice on display at the Museum. Thank yo for your wonderful review.
Glad I went on a Sunday because it was free entrance. The only really amazing thing to me was pulling out a drawer and seeing sketches by famous artists inches away from me.
Lots to see and well worth a visit. Lots of artifacts from limerick . Visitors shop has nice bits to buy . However the cafe is disappointing. The food I'd good and tasty bit it looks unfinished.i just feel they could make it a lot better than loose chairs scattered and untidy looking. It just needs a bit of design and tlc
The Donald Teskey exhibition "Weather Guage" running until Feb 2017 is really worth a visit. It takes you to the west coast of Ireland in a dramatic fashion. Follow this with a great lunch at the Hunt museum cafe and you are laughing!
A lovely coffee shop with delicious goodies and savouries. Great staff and efficient service. Well worth the visit - even if you are not visiting the museum - go there anyway, and enjoy looking out at the Shannon flowing by.
