Santa Cruz House
"We stayed at the Santa Cruz one night before catching our return flight to the U.S. at Shannon Airport. The service is friendly, the room spotless. We rather liked it because it isn't really "modern," which I say as a compliment. It was more old-fashioned Irish, which means it had some character. Like virtually everything in Ireland, it was overpriced because they still multiply the base rate by the number of people staying in the room. In...

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.
