    by SarahEire Updated Oct 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cruises Street is probably the best place in Limerick City Centre for shopping.

    It has all the usual high street stores such as HMV, Next, River Island, Boots, Thorntons, The Body Shop, DP, Claires Accessories, Barretts, Champion Sports, Footlocker and Superdrug, New Look and Wallis.

    Shopping / Streets / Areas: Everyday Shopping, and the 'Special Stuff'

    by cmboothe Written Nov 11, 2004

    Limerick is not the best place to shop, I hate to say it, but it's true, especially for the tourist type merchandise. However, if you fancy a coat or sweater or maybe a new pair of shoes...

    Penney's has the best prices by far and a nice selection. You'll see college kids wearing Penney's stuff all the time.

    Dunnes is both clothing and food, a little better quality than Penney's but still good prices.

    Tesco also has food, it is your typical grocery store.

    Warning all, Centra stores are addictiing - it's so easy to say, 'I'll just pop in for a candy bar'. Centras the ever present convenience store, you can buy a soft drink, candy bars, and usually a sandwhich. They often have ATM's as well. I usually ask for directions here, but always buy a candy bar as well.

    What to buy: Special Items...

    I just try to get my groceries and the occasional sweater, but I'm sure if you looked hard, you'd find the odd speciality store.

    Shopping / Streets / Areas: Cruises Street

    by irishjon25 Written Jun 2, 2004

    Cruises Street,

    By far one of the most busiest areas to be found on a Saturday afternoon in Limerick City. This street is only a few years old and has seen lots of new devolpment. Some of the stores to be found on this street are Argos, Eason's, HMV, Game, Marathon Sports, Paco, Heirlom's, River Island and lots of stores which sell women's clothes. (Sorry i cant remember the names).
    There are also a few cafe's and restuaran's close by to relax in and watch the world go by.

    Shopping / Streets / Areas: Where to get your Souvenirs

    by orlikins Written Dec 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Try White Gold and Brown Thomas Limerick on O'Connell st for dresden, crystal, woollen goods, etc.

    Also try Carraig Donn in the Crescent Shopping Centre, they might have a branch in Limerick city centre, but I cannot remember right now.

    What to buy: Limerick lace, woollen knits, Dresden, crystal.

    What to pay: The sky is the limit!

    Well, to be honest Limerick isn't a very good place for shopping. There are hardly any of the bigger department stores and in the shopping malls you'll find more grocery stores than clothes stores. If you still want to go shopping in Limerick now then I'd recommend to check out the stores in O'Connell Street (that's also where Brown Thomas is located), as well as those in the pedestrian area.

    What to pay: prices are about the same as in Germany.
