Limerick Tours with Great British Trips
Set in a picturesque location by the River Shannon, Limerick is the third biggest city of the Republic of Ireland. A city of many contrasts, the juxtaposition of the modern and the old makes Limerick one of the top destinations in Ireland, offering a wide range of excellent shops and restaurants. Older than London, the city's origins date back to when the Vikings sailed up the Shannon Estuary in 922 and founded a settlement on an island. Nowadays, you can still find traces of its rich medieval past in the narrow and winding streets.
