There is so much to discover in West Limerick. Hills, valleys, rivers and lakes, forests, hiking trails, canoeing, mountain biking, historic monuments and so much more. All set within forty shades of green meadows and pasture. Bring your tent, motorhome or stay in one of the many hotels, B&Bs, self catering cottages or even your very own castle.

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOUR ARRIVAL

The location of West Limerick means that each and every season here comes with its own distinct benefits. For many visitors, that offers the opportunity to make several visits a year, and enjoy distinctly different experiences. 

Regardless of the season you visit in, make sure you prepare yourself accordingly. If you’re coming in the summer, make sure you pack some sun cream and an umbrella. And if you’re here in the early spring or late autumn, bring plenty of warm clothes and an umbrella.

Book ahead for accommodation and rentals in our peak season June to September.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR VISIT & PLANING YOUR TRIP

ACCOMMODATION
The region has accommodation to suit every taste and every budget. Look through our website to make contact with accommodation providers direct.
ATTRACTIONS, EXPERIENCES AND THE TIME TO COME
Most of our service providers are open all year round so please don't assume winter is not a good time to come. We actually get some of our best weather and most dramatic scenery in the Autumn and Spring with December days often a joy with less crowds and the best personal attention.
