Visit the Limerick City Museum

A museum dedicated to Irish history

The museum is housed in an old building on King’s Island, easily recognizable by its white Georgian-style façade. The collection presented by the museum, covers a large period of the history of County Limerick, and includes many relics from the Bronze Age, everyday objects from the Middle Ages, lace made in Limerick, but also many agricultural tools dating from the Irish peasantry.

You will also discover the Viking origins of the city of Limerick, up to the Anglo-Norman and then Cromwellian assaults. You will discover the ravages of the Great Famine, as well as the absolute misery in which the inhabitants of Limerick once lived.

The museum is rather modern, and offers many documentaries and videos, using giant screens. A nice way to approach the city from a historical point of view…
