Visited the Hunt Museum a second time and it was still really cool. The atmosphere was quite vibrant as it was the Riverfest weekend in May. There were a couple of bands set up on the lawns playing music. Thought that there were additional artefacts...More

Private collection available to view in Limerick. Spent about two hours here while visiting the city. The collection spans 3 stories of the museum. There are plenty of cool treasures here, including many sculptures and weapons.

This was really just a collection of antiques over 3 floors. Some of the objects were nice but overall I was a little disappointed.

This was a nice stop on a rainy afternoon. The staff were very friendly and interested in sharing information and answering questions. It's a small museum with a nice cafe and gift shop.
