  • t's a beautiful place - nestled in a historical estate on the banks of the Shannon. The architecture of the Universisty of Limerick is a wonderful blend of old and new - glass and chrome, with air-space-tunnels joining ancient family estate-house. It's a remarkable place - hosting Ireland's best academically as well as in sport and music. It also houses the country's best sporting facilities - the Irish rugby team used be seen regularly there training. Substantial art collections are also housed, dotted around various faculty buildings. It's well worth a visit. It's easy to get to - out in Plassey/Castletroy just off the main road to Dublin from Limerick city.
  • A beautiful place to visit.
