We stayed at the University of Limerick. I dont know if they had offered dorms rooms for us to stay in because we were there for the tournament, or if they offer them to anyone. But we did have good rooms, and every morning, girls came to bring new towels and clean up after us. It was a nice stay and a very comfortable surrounding. The only thing that would have been better would be if it were closer to town, but it was only a short cab or bus ride there.
Barrington's Lodge Hostel looked like an old nurses dorm (being an old nurse, I recognize the signs!)
It is attached to the Barringtons Hospital overlooking the Abbey River. It appeared to be the site of major public works renovation (the river, not the hostel) The room we had was done in shades of purple, with a blue rug on the floor. It had a cracked window on one side with a loose window on the other with excellent cross ventilation (unfortunately it was MARCH) However it was very clean, very conveniently located. I wouldn't recommend it highly, but it was an OK place to stay.
If you're hosteling, Westbourne is the place to stay at. Rooms are clean and private, and they seemed to have plenty of singles available. It's a bit out of the way, out in the western part of town, near the university, but it's only a 10-15min walk into town. Or you could always grab a cab if it's after dark and you don't feel like walking along the docks.
I paid about 18pounds in July 2001, not sure what that'd be in Euros now.
Just about everything about this place is great. It's clean, great facilities, kitchen, lounge, private rooms, nice bathrooms, secure, etc.
ELM PARK!!!!!!!!! WOOOHOOO!!!!!!!!
Such a mad laugh with Av, karen, jo-jo , ger and Colm..
If you're going to Limerick for a while I would advise a hostel or a bed & breakfast. There are a couple of hostels in the city centre.
If you have the money there are some nice hotels in the city centre (near O'Connell St.) incl. The Royal George and Jurys.
