New Three Bridges Walking Map and Guide launched for Limerick on Foot campaign

Glorious views of the Three Bridges Walk!

Limerick City and County Council is calling on people to get a real sense of the city and enjoy spectacular views of the River Shannon along the Three Bridges walking route.

A new map, both in print and in digital format, highlights the route, which is a firm favourite with visitors and locals alike.

The 3.6km Slí na Sláinte looped walk follows a stunning route along the banks of the river, passing some of Limerick’s most iconic landmarks, striking street art and picturesque parks!

The new map highlights over twenty points of interest to explore en route. The handy guide makes an excellent companion for those out and about on Limerick’s renowned riverside route.

The Three Bridges Walk map is part of Limerick City and County Council’s four-week multimedia campaign which is running from mid-January to mid-February across social, digital and print media.

This year’s campaign also includes a specially curated Limerick Walk It Run It Love It playlist, which features an eclectic array of musicians from Limerick’s vibrant music scene and makes for a spirited soundtrack for runners and walkers when stepping out in Limerick.

Donn O’Sullivan, Head of Marketing and Communications with Limerick City and County Council added “The Three Bridges Walk is a such an amazing asset in the heart of Limerick City. Not only is it an enjoyable walk, or run, over the 3.6km, but it is also a fantastic way to see Limerick City on foot. This map allows those who have never done the “Three Bridges” before to learn about our historic city, but it also serves as a guide to those more “experienced” users to the wonderful history of Limerick around them”

The printed versions of the map will be available at Limerick City and County Council offices at Merchant’s Quay and Dooradoyle,  in selected hotels, Museums and cafes. Distribution of print guides will commence this week.

The Three Bridges Walk digital guide is available for download here.

Distance: 3.6km

Start/End: Arthur’s Quay Park
