About

As Ireland's third largest city, Limerick is alive with excitement and entertainment. At the heart Ireland's Midwest region, Limerick offers a dynamic mix of modern city life and fascinating medieval treasures. Whether students prefer to tune in to Limerick's legendary nightlife, shopping and arts scene or attend lively festivals such as Riverfest and the Limerick International Music Festival, Limerick will never cease to entertain. Students can also catch a glimpse of Limerick's more relaxing side with a relaxing stroll along the banks of the River Shannon, which meanders through the middle of the university.

The city gives visitors a glimpse into Ireland's fascinating past by visiting the medieval walls of King John's Castle or taking a tour of the Hunt Museum's intriguing collection of Iron and Bronze Age artifacts. Sport lovers will be amazed by the wealth of athletic opportunities here in the sporting capital of Ireland, where Gaelic football, golf, rugby, hurling and cycling are all popular activities.
