Experience Limerick,the Riverside City

Limerick City is a busy, bustling city and the commercial capital of the Mid-West of Ireland. It is a compact, walk-able city where most of the sights and attractions are within a stone's throw of each other. Its castles, ancient walls and museums are testament to its dramatic past.

Limerick City is the third largest city of the Republic of Ireland, situated on the River Shannon ,the longest river in Ireland. Celts & Normans left their mark in this town & in 1691 after the Battle of the Boyne, the Treaty of Limerick was signed on a stone known as The Treaty Stone that has become a famous landmark.

The oldest part of Limerick is King's Island with its narrow medieval streets & King John's Castle which was built by the Normans in the 13th century.The castle is now a museum that portrays 800 years of the city's & Ireland's history.

Limerick is a renowned sporting city, famous for its love of rugby and is home to the iconic Thomond Park Stadium. Limerick is often referred to as the spiritual home of Irish rugby and its passionate Munster rugby supporters have been described as among the best fans in the world.

Located in the city centre,the traditional Milk Market is a fresh food produce market,operating on Saturday morning.In the old market buildings which surround the market proper a wider selection of goods are available including clothing,fresh fish,farm meats & organic fruit & vegetables.

There is always something to do in Limerick City which is virtually bursting with fascinating historic sights, wonderful old pubs, fashionable bars, glossy shops, smart restaurants and good transport links . Whether you are a fan of theatre, opera, ballet, modern dance or something more active like rugby, Gaelic football or hurling Limerick city offers these in abundance.

Dolan's pub,in an old warehouse, is one of the best comedy and live music venues in the country. Limerick lays on a compelling menu of festivals and events throughout the year including the internationally renowned EV+A exhibition, Riverfest and the MBNA Limerick International Music Festival with the Irish Chamber Orchestra.

About 10km outside Limerick is Bunratty Castle & Folk Park where you can learn about Irish life in the 14th century.The pubs & restaurants of the Folk Park offer a good variety of traditional Irish food & in the castle you can take part in a Medieval banquet.

County Limerick, contrasting with the City, is a place of quiet beauty and rural charm. Its gentle undulating landscape is pleasing to the eye from rural mountains of Ballyhoura, the beautiful Golden Vale in the east of the County through to the tidal estuary of the River Shannon.

"A great home base for budget travelers to visiting the west of Ireland"

We finished our Ireland trip with Pat at his comfortable property only 25 minutes from the Shannon Airport. Pat was an incredibly gracious, knowledgeable, helpful host. This spacious and affordable self-catering accommodation provided us a perfect location, convenient to the airport and away from the crowds. We are" do-it yourselfers" and "off-the-beaten path" travelers so this fit the bill for us perfectly. July and August are the heavy vacation times in Ireland and many of the most popular places can get very crowded. Pat suggested a few things to see, such as the Clare Glens, that were both uncrowded and beautiful. The loft kitchen had a large skylight that you could stand up and look out at the idyllic countryside surrounding the property. The gardens were well-maintained with eye-catching flowers throughout the property. There was ample parking at the lodge, which is another consideration not to be taken for granted. We wish we had known about this property for the first few days of our trip because it would have been perfect place to unwind after the long overnight flight to Shannon and it would have been more accessible for a newly arrived Yank coming to grips with driving in Ireland. A couple of things you need to know. The stand-up shower is a bit tight for someone like me who is bigger than the average bear, but if I can get in it you probably can. Second, Internet and laundry facilities are provided in the main house not in the guesthouses, which are separate from the main house in a remodeled stable or carriage house. We found this to be common at all but one of the places we stayed during our 16 days in Ireland. Third the stairs/ladder to the well-equipped loft kitchen might prove to be a problem for some travelers. For us this added to the charm, authenticity and character of the lodge. If these prove to be insurmountable problems for you, be advised that you could end up spending twice as much or more for self-catering lodging during Ireland's high season. For my wife and I, my needing to squeeze into the shower was a small price to pay for the hospitality, privacy, affordability and convenience of Coolbegs Lodge. Thanks Pat, hope to see you again next year.
