The landscape is adorned with treasures like Lough Gur’s ancient stone circles and the luxurious Adare Manor, while the bustling city of Limerick itself boasts landmarks like the Hunt Museum and the contemporary University of Limerick campus.

Outdoor enthusiasts can explore the Ballyhoura Mountains and Curraghchase Forest Park, while those seeking a taste of Ireland’s literary heritage can venture on an “Angela’s Ashes” walking tour.
