Living in Limerick
Limerick is a great place to both live and work. It is strategically placed at the Heart of the Mid-West Region. Shannon International Airport is on our doorstep. We offer world class education facilities such as the University of Limerick, Limerick Institute of Technology and Mary Immaculate College.
Plus our population growth is strong; an increase of 5.7% between 2002 and 2006 to a population of 184,000 citizens.
Limerick is the third largest city in the Republic of Ireland, and is today the growing commercial, financial, educational and cultural centre in provincial Ireland.
Approximately 49% of the total population are between the ages of 0-29, resulting in a young vibrant city with a changing face focusing primarily on education, better road networks and infrastructure, social and leisure activities. Limerick’s colourful and fascinating history is evident and proudly maintained.
