2. Raise a glass

Limerick has some lovely little gems for you and the girls to enjoy a few tipples. Ranging from the atmospheric and candlelit Copper Room, tucked away in a cellar on O’Connell Street to the relaxed glamour of House Limerick, located along our scenic riverfront, you’re sure to find the perfect spot for a glass or three. 

3. Get your dancing shoes on at Opium Limerick, O’Connell Street

Go big or go home. Stay late into the morning and dance the night away to Opium’s endorphin-boosting tunes.

4. Afternoon Tea at Adare Manor

A truly decadent treat, where the exquisite cakes look like a work of art. Plus, the plush surroundings will serve as the perfect backdrop for your group pic! Winner. Discover More.

5. Shopping Heaven throughout Limerick City and County

There’s no shortage of retail therapy to be had, between Limerick city and its surrounding towns. From vintage one-of-a-kind pieces, to catwalk-ready designer styles and high street favourites, Limerick is famous for its impressive range of independent boutiques, high street stores and retail outlets including Ireland’s largest regional shopping centre, the Crescent Shopping Centre

6. Pamper Day at Revas Spa, Fitzgerald’s House Hotel, Adare

If you’re going to get away, you may as well turn the trip into a full blown pampering session. The extensive treatment menu at Revas will leave you rested, refreshed and ready to take on the world.…… and breathe! 

7. Coffee and chats at Bedford Townhouse, Bedford Row

Stop for a frothy coffee and a proper catch up at the Bedford Townhouse, located right in the heart of Limerick city centre. Grab your pals, your shades and a seat al fresco and soak up the summer sun. Nearby, the Buttery Bedford Row and Hook & Ladder Sarsfield Street are also highly recommended for meeting up with the gals.

8. Take on the Escape Room, Nicholas Street

For the gang who are looking for something a little more mentally challenging, we think the Escape Room is just the one for you. Even if your team loses, it’s still a proper giggle! 

9. Treaty City Brewery, Nicholas Street

If you’re a craft beer lover, Treaty City Brewery is a great spot. Located in Limerick’s Medieval Quarter; take a tour of the artisan microbrewery and sample a flight of the experimental beers afterwards. 

10. Three Bridges Walk, Limerick City Centre

Chuck on your trainers (or tackies as we like to call them here) and take Limerick’s favourite urban walking trail. Top Tip: Keep an eye out for some of Limerick’s most awesome street art on your stroll. 

11. Be the queens of your very own castle at Springfield Castle

If you’re celebrating something specific or just want to do something a little bit special with your besties, be sure to add an exclusive, relaxing stay in a one-of-a kind castle, situated on a magical 200 acre wooded estate to your itinerary. 

The Vikings founded Limerick in 922 and they were well up for a summer celebration. Since then, we’ve had 11 centuries to perfect the art of the brilliant summer and we think this one will be our best yet. Head straight to Limerick.ie/11 to find out more and plan your break.
