"Limerick" Top 5 Page for this destination Limerick by Kristina1701

Limerick Travel Guide: 272 reviews and 289 photos

NOTE: I'm just about to build my Limerick Page, ..... it would be a pleasure to welcome you back here later!

Limerick, situated in the west of the island at the Shannon River, has about 100,000 inhabitants and is the third largest city in Ireland. It surely makes a good base for touring the mid-west of the country for it is close to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway for example, Dublin and Cork aren't that far away either, the city itself is not very spectacular though. Besides Limerick is known for its high crime-rate.

    Yeah fair enough, but Limerick people are really nice! And every city in England and Germany probably has a higher crime rate! I agree it's not exactly Paris, though. But I'm proud of that =) Nice collection of pages... hugs from london x

    Not sure why you can be so negative about the city. You seem to fall into the usual stereo typical group. I notice the way you say "I was told this" or "i heard this". Would be much better if you visited those area's.

    Hi Kristina, thanks for your comment on my Cork page. I was just looking at your albums and enjoyed them very much. You are right about the crime, it is a pity as this city is really great otherwise.

    Well written helpful tips. Did not see whether people talk in limericks there. BTW, that was one big Guinness.
