Rainy Days and Indoor Fun in Limerick

We get our fair share of rain here on the Emerald Isle, so it's always a good idea to have something up your sleeve to keep the kids happy when the clouds roll in!

An old faithful when it rains - go to the cinema! With new releases out so often there's always something to see, and let's face it, sometimes we enjoy the animated flicks more than the kiddies!

Why not take shelter and savour a sweet treat in one of Limerick's cosy cafés? Our Discover Limerick Activity pack is ideal for keeping the little ones entertained at the table. Mini explorers can discover Limerick in their own way with a spot the difference ‘Limerick International Band Championship style’ or colour themselves calm with a mindfulness Lough Gur scene. Download the pack here.

Help them continue their reading with a trip to the local library. Make the visit more exciting by dropping in to one of the many storytelling or arts and crafts events that take place regularly at Limerick's libraries. Find a list of local libraries here.

While away an afternoon at the Hunt Museum, a treasure trove filled with art and antiquities where kiddies can explore the collection through a series of fun-filled treasure trails and online games. Best of all, under 16s go free!

Where better to take refuge on a rainy day than at Limerick’s 13th Century fortress King John’s Castle teeming with interactive displays and fun activities for all ages?!

Get the whole family onside at the International Rugby Experience where the exciting game day energy is brought to life through a series of fun, interactive trials. Finish the tour with stunning 360° views of Limerick City from the top floor Legends Gallery!

Limerick has a wide selection of fun centres, guaranteed to delight kids and provide parents with the opportunity to sit back and relax!

Family favourite bowling is a must on a damp day! Along with bowling lanes, Funworld has an entertainment area with arcade games! Or try bowling like you’ve never seen before! Arena 5 is Irelands only UV Bowling experience. Boasting 8 ultra violet lanes and glow in the dark bowling balls to give you the best bowling experience in the country.

It can be hard to keep them active when stuck indoors, but some of Limerick's venues are fixing that! Jumplanes is a great big indoor trampoline park, Rollerjam roller disco is a blast from the past activity all ages love and Jurassic Parrr has given golf a crazy twist, creating a unique and fun activity for everyone!
