  • Cratloe woods

    Limerick Off The Beaten Path

    Cratloe Woods is located between Limerick City and Shannon. From the top of the hill in Cratloe you can see the whole of Limerick City. This is beautiful, especially as the street lights start to light throughout the city.

    Check out the Poulnabrone Dolmen in the Burren area, north of Limerick. This is a tomb from about 2500-2000 bc. Burren is a beautiful area between Limerick and Galway, not that far from the Cliffs of Moher.

  • Flying

    Limerick Off The Beaten Path

    On the off-chance that you're a pilot, there's a small airfield, Coonagh, just outside the city. Limerick flying club operates out of there, and they offer 'intro-to-membership' flights. They got a C150 Aerobat, among others, and an aerobatics instructor on staff, so if you're lucky, you might be able to get some aerobatic time in while in the...

  • Grady's Hill & the Holy Year Cross

    This is across the road from my parent's house. People climb the hill to visit the cross on holy occasions.

  • People's Park

    If you're interested in just having a nice stroll in a green park you can always visit the People's Park in Limerick. There's tall memorial to Thomas Spring Rice that was erected in 1829 in the middle.

  • Flying Boats & Irish Coffee

    In July, The Flying Boat musuem in Foynes holds the Irish Coffee festival in conjunction with Powers whiskey every year. The festival has only been around for a few years but the drink itself has been intoxicating people the world over ;-o) However apart from the Flying Boat musuem, the port, a pub, a church and a supermarket, there is literally...
