“Atmosphere and scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

What a setting for a campus and such friendly people, I was visiting the sporting facilities which are second to none and a credit to the people who run this place.

“Enormous campus by RIVER SHANNON”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Family member was a UL student, and local families and dog-walkers are encouraged to avail of the many walks throughout the large campus. Great restaurants, wonderful swimming pool and gym area - The Arena, Olympic sized all weather running track, astro-turf tennis courts, picnic areas, spotlessly kept with campus security and cameras everywhere.

“Modern and very well laid out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

The university campus is a very pleasant to visit with lots of walking spaces.

It crosses the river Shannon into Co Clare across an unusual foot bridge which "moves" as you walk.

“GREAT PLACE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Great place to walk around beautiful modern buildings mixed with one of the oldest rivers in Ireland. Produced some of the country's future leading statesmen and entrepreneurs. A credit to all that made this a must for any visitors to Limerick.

“More than buildings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Think a university building is boring? Not this one. The University of Limerick is located right beside the river Shannon. There are lovely riverside walks along tree lined paths. Close by are the ruins of an old mill and a collection of fishermens' huts. Bring the kids up to the swimming place known as "Sandy" to generations of Limerick people. Have a walk across the curved pedestrian bridge to the other shore. If you're feeling energetic, head upriver to see the famous Black Pipes where the river Mulcair joins the Shannon If you're hungry, have a snack at the University café or have a picnic among the trees and watch the river flow by. Visit the 50m. swimming pool or maybe see the Munster rugby team train. It's all there at the University of Limerick. A great day out for all the family
