Very Interesting.

Excellent presentation, good value (€5), friendly staff, and if antiquities of the decorative variety are your choice a great place to spend a few hours

Quaint little art gallery, interesting mix of art and artefacts. Certainly worth the price of admission. Had an exhibit about the 1916 uprising which was neat too.

We found this museum to be disappointing. The venues were modest and the accuracy of the artifacts were many times "not sure." We would probably not return if ever in the area again.

Small museum with a great collection of antiquities from all over the world along with some Irish specific items. Centennial Reflection going on through August. Mike (docent) was fantastic and made the tour interesting enough for positive comments from 3 teenagers. Worth stopping in if you are in Limerick. Easy walk from St. Mary's Cathedral. Tour lasted about 45 minutes... More

A small museum which is worth a visit. If you have Eva coupons entry is free. There is quite a lot in the exhibit but it could do with a bit more organisation/structure, for example there's a Picasso that could easily be missed in one of the side rooms. It is a relaxing place to spend an hour or two... More

This is a small museum and pretty eclectic, which means there is a fair breadth of exhibits, but not much depth. In my opinion, there are too few items of genuine interest. I've seen too many axe heads, too many old needles and too many unidentifiable agricultural thingies, so to attract my interest there really has to be a cohesive... More

They serve fairly traditional food here - fabulous deserts. Don't have the coffee. After lunch you can take a look around the museum too.

Met my tour guide (see my review of Limerick Walking Tours) at the Hunt and I spent about 3 hours total there, both pre and post tour. Art exhibit on bottom floor celebrating the events of 1916 was inspiring and educational. The regular museum displays were very good and I found myself thoroughly engaged on each of the floors. Even... More

Nice collection of artifacts from different times. There is a Picasso and Rembrandt. It wasn't crowded at all and I thought it worth the price. There is a restaurant that appears to have live music. I didn't eat there but it looked pleasant.
