The unofficial capital of the Midwest, and the third largest city in the country, Limerick is a quintessential Irish metropolis.
Standing proudly atop of the mythical, meandering River Shannon, Limerick City oozes the youthful zeal of all great university towns, while retaining its own unique essence.
The Medieval, Georgian and contemporary buildings throughout the city serve as concrete chapters in Limerick’s singular story, while it is also where some of Ireland’s most celebrated musical, literary, dramatic, sporting and comedic talents were incubated.
At almost every turn, you’ll encounter culinary, cultural and social hotspots, equally enjoyable during the day or at night, and, should you have an extended stay in mind, there is no shortage of excellent establishments to rest your head.
Even in a country as fanatical about sports as Ireland, Limerick stands apart. And, as the spiritual home of the legendary Munster Rugby, the heaving Thomond Park stadium takes pride of place in the city. It’s certainly worth a visit, even in the off-season.
Just beyond the city centre, on the Dock Road, you’ll find the Europcar Ireland branch. Located at the James Barry Motors car dealership, we’re ideally placed for anyone set to embark on a journey throughout not just the Midwest, but also Ireland’s beautiful South.
The average age of the vehicles in our comprehensive and flexible fleet is just 18 months. So, regardless of which one you choose, it will be ultra-modern, meticulously-maintained, and equipped to get you where you’re going in comfort, safety and style.
Our staff will always be on hand to answer any questions or queries you may have and to ensure you’re on the road as soon as possible.
Beyond the confines of the city, Limerick is furnished with a plethora of vast rolling landscapes, including mountain ranges, notably the Galtees and Ballyhouras, that have to be seen to be believed.
Landlocked by four counties - Cork, Kerry, Clare and Tipperary – Limerick is the perfect launchpad for those with a mind for exploration. The Shannon is teeming with all manner of marine life, so a day spent fishing the storied river is just one of many means to immerse yourself in the natural surrounds.
