A WEEKEND IN IRELAND


I don't know about you, but Ireland has been calling my name since I saw P.S. I Love You (such a good movie, by the way). Today we have the help of a few experts on places to see when visiting Ireland, and now they've got me dreaming up ways to get myself to these historically awesome places before I get too old to climb the stairs.

A Weekend in Limerick: Top Attractions to Include
Over recent years, the Irish city of Limerick has really come into its own as a holiday destination,providing plenty of attractions to ensure that any visitor’s itinerary is jam packed. As Ireland’s first designated City of Culture, you can guarantee plenty of cultural treats to keep you busy, while the city’s vibrancy continues into the evening, where you can sample delicious cuisine, trendy bars and comfortable pubs ensuring that your enjoyment of the city continues beyond nightfall.
With Travelodge hotels in Limerick, you can book yourself a room in the heart of the city so that your itinerary fillers are on your doorstep. This reasonably priced accommodation will provide you with comfort and style at an affordable price, leaving you with some spare cash to enjoy everything that the city has on offer.
The city has come a long way since its Angela’s Ashes days and with these top attractions, you can see for yourself just how much Limerick has transformed itself.
King John’s Castle
Immerse yourself in the history of Limerick by making a visit to its iconic castle. Situated on the shore of the River Shannon, this 13th century stronghold has recently undergone a colossal renovation costing over £6million and showcases over 800 years of Limerick and Irish history, including a brand new visitor experience, touch screen technology and re-enacted scenes from the 17th century siege.

Hunt Museum
A veritable treasure trove can be found beyond the unassuming doors of the Hunt Museum, with antiquities housed including the Antrim Cross, works by Picasso and a substantial Irish medieval collection, including the O’Dea Mitre and Crozier.

The Treaty Stone
Limerick’s most famous monument which got its name from the Treaty of Limerick, can be found in Clancy’s Strand and while it will only take a few minutes out of your day to see, it’s well worth doing so.

During your stay, be sure to check the listingat the University Concert Hall, because you may be able to catch a live show or recital, while Cruises Street and the Arthurs Quay shopping centre are ideal for a spot of retail therapy.
If you have time, cram in the Angela’s Ashes Walking Tour to experience the city in a different light and, most of all, enjoy your time in the Irish City of Culture 2014.
