What is on in Limerick this weekend?

Myself and my partner will be travelling by bus to Limerick on Saturday for two nights. We will be staying in The Absolute. We are wondering if there are any shows or night entertainment on either those nights besides a pub/club?!

We are in our mid to late 20's & wouldn't be to interested in most Museums. I also have a few other questions! :

*Are there any reasonably priced spas in the city?

*Where would the closet cinema be to the city centre? Can we get to it on foot?

*Would it be worth our time getting a tour bus to either Aliwee Caves or Bunratty? We have gone to both YEARS ago!

*Can somebody recommend a good restaurant for us to go to either Saturday or Sunday night? one preferably a seafood one.

Thank you in advance!!

www.dolans.ie for music The warehouse is a great venue

There is nothing on in the University Concert Hall, Limetree Theatre or Millenium Theatre.

There is Greyhound Racing on Friday and Saturday (9th and 10th ) at Limerick Greyhound Track - a new stadium with state of the art facilities http://www.igb.ie/Stadia/Limerick/

The Milk Market is 10 minutes walk from the Absolute and is on on Saturday mornings. Well worth a visit.

There are three cinemas in Limerick: Storm in Castletroy, Omniplex in The Crescent and Showtime on the Ennis Road. All are a bit away from you but Showtime is the nearest and is the newest and nicest www.showtimecinemas.ie/index.php… Its about 2 miles from the hotel.

Spa: The Urban Escape is in the Strand Hotel (about a mile from the Absolute) www.strandhotellimerick.ie/spa-treatments# I haven't used it but the Strand is an excellent hotel.

Restaurants: The Absolute Hotel has a lovely restaurant.

Nearby

The Locke Bar has an excellent seafood restaurant http://www.lockebar.com/ This is less than 5 minutes from your hotel

Azur is almost beside The Locke and is also excellent http://www.azurlimerick.ie/

A little further into town, The Cornstore does a mix of seafood and non-seafood and is a fabulous restaurant. I've never got a bad meal there http://www.cornstorerestaurantslimerick.ie/ Its about 10 minutes walk from your hotel.

I love Bunratty. I think it would be worth your while, if the weather is good!!

Hope this helps.

There is a spa in your hotel, ring for details.

Music in pubs around town on Saturday nights. Somthing different limerick.ie/visiting/whatson/august2013event…

On Sunday night limerick.ie/visiting/whatson/august2013event…

Georges Quay is about a 5min walk from your hotel. Here you will find The Locke, a pub that does good food including seafood. Next door you will find the Firefly Bistro and AZUR http://www.azurlimerick.ie/index.html

Across the river on Clancys Strand you will find The Curraghgower, a pub specialising in seafood. The Cornstore on Thomas St is very good http://www.cornstorerestaurantslimerick.ie/ Mejana www.mejana.ie is also on Thomas St. and is a very nice Lebanese restaurant.

Closest cinema is on the Jetland retail park, about 20mins walk from downtown.

Bunratty is an easy bus ride away www.buseireann.ie the caves not so easy, I'd leave them for an other day.

Thank you both for replying. We have chosen to go to The Cornstore for our big dinner out & Have a lunch in Marco Polos.

I will make a reservation for the cornstore tomorrow. What day would be the liveliest evening around ? The Saturday or the Sunday or would they be both similar!

The Cornstore is ALWAYS busy. I think Saturday would probably be busier, but its all relative. It is a very nice restaurant.

Have a great time and please get back to us to let us know how you got on.

Both Bean A and lightblue have mentioned the Locke Bar, which is a short stroll from the Absolute.

If the weather is nice on either day, it is lovely to sit outside with a drink or a bite of lunch and watch the world go by:-)
