The Limerick Tour to show off all Limerick has to offer this Summer
by ilovelimerick correspondent Chloe O’Keeffe
Limerick-based band Hermitage Green front-man, Dan Murphy is setting up a new company called ‘The Limerick Tour’ with the idea to run day tours of Limerick throughout the Summer, “I have been running a travel company called Global Village Tours… for the past few years. We recently put wheels in motion to launch a new company running day tours of Limerick this Summer,” spoke the singer about his new company, The Limerick Tour.
The Limerick Tour is inclusive of a full action-packed day, of “fun and craic” in Limerick. At an all-inclusive rate of €59.99 per person, you will be treated to a tour and insight into Limerick City and its history.
The daily Limerick Tour will begin at 11.30 where you will meet your tour guide for the day at The Locke Bar. The itinerary of the day will be talked through with a coffee by the river. St. Marys Cathedral. The Cathedral of Saint Mary, Bless Virgin has had a long and eventful history and was first founded in 1168 on the site of a palace donated by Donal Mor O’Brien, the King of Munster, at the time. The Cathedral has seen many changes as the city expanded around it, yet it still remains the oldest and most historic building in Limerick.
The Medieval Quarter tour will take place shortly after, as you walk through some of Limericks oldest streets, taking in the Treaty Stone, Angelas Ashe’s sites, and the Clancy Strand Barracks- and all the history to go with it. The early Medieval City was established on the southern tip of King’s Island. Walled in 1185 it became known as English Town and from earliest times was the heart of the city.
Included in the cost of The Limerick Tour, is your lunch which will follow the morning of history you’ve taken in. The Curragower Seafood Bar is one of the oldest Limerick bars and boasts an award-winning menu along with amazing riverside views of King John’s Castle.
The tour of the Clancy Strand Barracks will continue, followed by a trip to the Hunt Museum and King Johns Castle, which is noted to be a tour highlight. King John’s Castle is located in the centre of Limerick City and attracts visitors of all ages.
The last leg of the tour includes a good pint of Guinness and some music, as no day in Limerick is complete without either, “Essentially [we want] to offer tourists a reason to spend a whole day, at least in Limerick,” spoke Dan Murphy, of The Limerick Tour.
