An hour is just enough time in Adare and then it’s onwards to Limerick which is only a 20-minute drive.
Limerick city doesn’t get as many tourists as it deserves. There have been really interesting changes taking place in the city for the last decade or more. Limerick is a real working city with very friendly locals. Lots of money has been spent in recent years renovating the main shopping and business areas and it’s starting to show with Limerick people finding a misplaced sense of real pride in the city.
A great place to have lunch or dinner, the city is bustling with very good pop up restaurants alongside more established eateries. The famous Milk Market in the city centre is really worth finding and exploring.
Limerick city and county are about as historically significant as it’s possible to be in Ireland.
King John’s Castle, Limerick
King John’s Castle is a 13th-century castle located on King’s Island in the city, next to the river Shannon. Although the site dates back to 922 when the Vikings lived on the Island, the castle itself was built on the orders of King John in 1200. One of the best preserved Norman castles in Europe, the walls, towers, and fortifications remain today and are visitor attractions. The remains of a Viking settlement were uncovered during archaeological excavations at the site in 1900. The visitor aspects of the Castle were redone and a state of the art visitor centre was built alongside the Castle in 2016.
