The multi-award winning Locke Bar sits picturesquely in the heart of Limerick City’s Medieval Quarter, where the Abbey River meets the Shannon.

Its beautiful riverside setting, featuring a hugely popular outdoor seating and entertainment area, brings a unique offering to the city of Limerick.


As a gastro pub, serving food 7 days a week, it is particularly renowned for its Ocean Fresh Seafood Menu and choice of Fresh Daily Specials as well as many other dishes to suit all tastes.


The Locke Bar has a history and resonance to its premises that is a rare find anywhere in Ireland. It can be found on the original site of one of Limerick City’s oldest pubs dating back to 1724. Nearby are some of the city’s most historical landmarks such as St. Mary’s Cathedral, King John’s Castle & the Hunt Museum.
