Limerick was founded by Vikings in the 9th century, making it one of Ireland's oldest cities. Its city charter is older than that of London! Located on the banks of the mighty River Shannon, it is quirky, vibrant and utterly individual. From its beautiful Georgian architecture and grand museums to its sports-obsessed locals, it will win you over.
