In contrast to the buzz of Limerick City, County Limerick is a place of rural charm and great beauty.
Day 1 - Discover Limerick City
Day 2 - Explore West County Limerick
Depart the City and head in the direction of the N69 (Limerick’s Coastal Route). Stop off in Kilcornan’s cluster of tourist attractions where you will find Curraghchase Forest Park, Stonehall Visitor Farm and Basecamp Adventure Park.
Next stop is Foynes, whose flying boat port played an important part in international aviation history. An absorbing museum commemorates the predecessor to the modern runways of Shannon Airport in Co. Clare and the home of the Irish Coffee.
From here make your way to Newcastle West with its top visitor attraction Desmond Hall, followed by the town of Rathkeale and it’s beautiful Georgian houses with columned porticoes and ornate fanlights.
Finish up your day with a visit to Adare whose thatched cottages and medieval churches make it Ireland’s prettiest village. As in Limerick City, the County also has a flourishing restaurant scene and a wide range of top quality accommodation choices to suit all budgets.
