County Limerick cottages

Steeped in history, County Limerick is one of Ireland’s most fascinating holiday destinations. We have an array of holiday cottages in Limerick, many of which are in the charming village of Bruree, just a half hour drive from Limerick city and the banks of the River Shannon. We also have dog-friendly accommodation across Limerick and there are a number of great local dog walks you can embark on across the County Limerick countryside to keep your canine companion entertained.  

County Limerick is well worth a visit and is dotted with picturesque towns and villages, such as Castleconnell on the banks of the Shannon, and Adare, with its old world thatched cottages and medieval churches. As the county is located on the Shannon, another great day out is enjoying a relaxing cruise on the Shannon, while those looking for more of a thrill can indulge in the county’s horse riding tradition.  

Limerick City and county covers an area of just over 1000 square miles and within its boundaries stand the ruins of no less than 450 castles. Springfield Castle, Desmond Castle and Glin Castle are among the county’s most popular historic sites and are very popular with history buffs, families and anyone wanting to get to know a little more about Ireland’s national heritage.  

Limerick city also has a fascinating history. The city dates from the middle of the ninth century, when the Danes made a settlement here and used it as a base for plundering the hinterland. This colony endured continual attacks by the Irish for more than a century and Brian Boru finally sacked the town and drove out the settlers. The town was taken by the Anglo-Normans towards the end of the twelfth century, but control was later regained by the O'Briens, who in 1194 commenced the building of St Mary's Cathedral. King john visited Limerick in 1210 and ordered a strong castle to be built - 'to watch towards Thomond' - and a bridge to span the Shannon. More than a century later, Edward Bruce occupied the city, presiding in the castle in semi-royal state for several months. 

Today, the city is known for its artistic community, quirky shops and breathtaking scenery across the Shannon. Get to know Limerick more by visiting The People’s Museum, or the Limerick City Gallery of Art, which has an ever-changing array of exhibitions by local and historic artists alike. The Milker’s Market is also a real gem of the city and sells a vast array of local produce, handmade crafts and more. What’s more, the market is never quiet, as local musicians fill the air with song.  

So get ready to fall in love with County Limerick, all from the comfort of one of our specially selected holiday cottages.
