Limerick Travel Tips & Suggestions
Take your thermals. It's always cold in Limerick. That draft from the River Shannon gets up your kilt.
— Cracked pot,
There are no hostels in Limerick. The city is full of refugees and the government have crammed them in to the tourist hostels. It's disgusting. The refugees are there because the government takes money to accept them in and then virtually imprisons them allowing no opportunities to work or integrate. I was shocked by all I saw and experienced in Limerick.
