Limerick, the Riverside City, is the capital of the Mid-West region and the third largest city in Ireland. In 2002 it was awarded Gateway status with neighbouring Shannon which recognised the area as having sufficient scale and critical mass to attract significant investment and job opportunities.
With a population of over 100,000 people, living in the greater urban area, Limerick is a growing commercial, financial and cultural hub. Thanks to short commute times, affordable house prices and excellent educational facilities the people of Limerick enjoy an unparalleled high quality of life.
Limerick is strategically located mid-way along the Western seaboard of Ireland, and is the retail, business, financial, industrial, administrative and commercial heart of the mid-west region.
