Do you know that one of the 30 pieces of silver Judas was paid id reputed to be among the collection. Also some very fine paintings of local areas from times past. I particularly like the the painting of the Kilmallock countryside. One piece that would do well to be returned to Limerick is the Ardagh Chalice and this musuem... More

Glad I went on a Sunday because it was free entrance. The only really amazing thing to me was pulling out a drawer and seeing sketches by famous artists inches away from me.

Lots to see and well worth a visit. Lots of artifacts from limerick . Visitors shop has nice bits to buy . However the cafe is disappointing. The food I'd good and tasty bit it looks unfinished.i just feel they could make it a lot better than loose chairs scattered and untidy looking. It just needs a bit of design... More

The Donald Teskey exhibition "Weather Guage" running until Feb 2017 is really worth a visit. It takes you to the west coast of Ireland in a dramatic fashion. Follow this with a great lunch at the Hunt museum cafe and you are laughing!

A lovely coffee shop with delicious goodies and savouries. Great staff and efficient service. Well worth the visit - even if you are not visiting the museum - go there anyway, and enjoy looking out at the Shannon flowing by.

Love the peacefulness of the museum and the interesting things on display. Nice but pricey gift shop. The coffee shop has homemade soup and homemade scones (among other things). Great coffee shop.

This is a beautiful museum, not a far walk from King John's Castle. The Hunt exhibits one of Ireland's greatest private collections of art and antiquities dating from the Neolithic period to the 20th century. It's open from 10-5 daily but pay attention to closing around the holidays. Sculptures in the garden are great as well.

Incredible works by artists dating back millennia and incorporating artists ranging from old masters, to the greats of Ireland and many inbetween!
