Not a lot to see at the moment. The cafe was good and the cake tasty! The staff were helpful and understood our disappointment at there being so little to see.More

The Hunt museum located in Limerick is not especially geared to Irish history but the collection of artifacts, paintings and jewelry put together by this archaeology enthusiast is definitely worth visiting. Lots of variety and interesting pieces. We quite enjoyed it.

Hello all! I have been a lurker on this forum for some time now and have found it to be an invaluable source of information for my upcoming trip to Ireland in April. I am starting to firm up some ideas on what to do and where to stay and hopefully the TA community can help. I will be flying into Shannon Airport on April 15th and flying back out of Shannon on April 30th. I will have a rental car for my entire stay and will be traveling alone. My short list of must see/must do's (very...More

Good idea to give Cork a priority, it's beautiful. Try to get in around Gougane Barra. Would you consider going straight to Clonmel? Its not far and you could break in Limerick, visit the Hunt, maybe lunch, then go at a gentle pace to Clonmel? You could take a few days at the end to explore county Clare from Bunratty / Shannon area and take in some of the rest of county Clare. Within an hour or so you could visit the cliffs of Moher, Lough Derg, the Burren, Loop head, or visit one of...More

This exhibition runs until May 31st in the Hunt Museum. http://www.learnaboutarchives.ie/~learnabo/news/97-ranks We finally managed to make it there this afternoon and it was fabulous. For those of you not au-fait with the history of Limerick, Ranks Flour Mills was an iconic building and company on the Dock Road in Limerick. It finally closed in the 1980s and later created further history by becoming the building that wouldn't blow up. Because, many of you are aware, grain can be quite...More

Have to visit this exhibition Bean a as my father worked there for thirty years are there a lot of photos or is it mostly written history on display,I only found out lately that it was owned by the Ranks film distribution company as many people will remember the black and white films that opens with a man hitting a rather large gong,with work commitments its awkward for me can you tell me what time in the afternoon/evening do the doors close? Best wishes,Mike
