Limerick is located in the Southwest of Ireland. Limerick’s most striking feature is the River Shannon, flowing majestically beneath the city’s three bridges. Historically Limerick is a city of many contrasts. It contains a medieval core with a later Georgian addition. Of particular importance are King John’s castle, built between the 12th and 16th century and St Mary’s cathedral, built c.1172. Other highlights include the Old Exchange facade and Almshouses, located on King’s island. Close by are Bunratty castle and folk park, one of Ireland’s leading tourist attractions.
