Thinking of proposing? With Valentine’s Day just around the corner Limerick is the perfect location to pop the question!


Every King Needs a Queen 

If you're looking for the wow factor, what could be more romantic than to propose in a castle?

Limerick’s 13th century King John’s Castle sits in the heart of the medieval quarter and boasts one of the best views of the city.

Castles are associated with history, honour, love and passion, devotion and loyalty. Sound familiar to a marriage? The symbolism between the two makes a castle a proposal venue to cherish and one that your partner will never forget!
