A MUST-SEE FOR ART LOVERS

Nice, small, intimate art gallery. Try to find the Paul Gauguin picture. There's a great selection of the Irish artists.

This has been on my wife's To Do list for quite some time- actually both Limerick and the Hunt Museum. Neither disappointed. The Hunt Museum is a fine building with a large and eclectic range of items. Do take one of the volunteer guides, otherwise the sheer variety and number of objects could be over-powering! Our guide was excellent and... More

They also have an indoor area for packed lunches which is priceless with a school group.... More

The Hunt Museum has an eclectic mix of paintings, ceramics, religious art , Egyptian and Roman treasures and Irish bronze and is a must on your list of things to do in Limerick. Ask a reception for a Docent (guide) to show you round. This service is FREE.

The Hunt is a small Museum but the staff are very helpful. Once you have done your tour you can relax in the cafe and enjoy some excellent food while looking out on the river Shannon

Great place, a hidden gem. A place that Limerick should be very proud of. Staff were very friendly and polite. Great views of the majestic river Shannon.
