The Hunt Museum, Limerick Reviews - Write a Review

  • Yes Yes and Yes again. If in Limerick this museum is well worth a visit. Also superb coffee shop. Just the spot to sit and think and reflect.. ( sounds very philosophical ) , but you know what I mean

  • Brilliant. This museum is a cornucopia of treasures. Well worth visiting. The exhibition in the basement changes every few months and is always worth seeing. The museum is free on Sundays and has a 2 for the price of 1 admission offer on Mondays.

  • Been here a few times for college and exhibits over the years. A great exhibition and very helpful, knowledgeable nice staff. Well worth a visit. The canteen is a bit pricy though but that's most tourist spots for you.

  • Wonderful museum Something of interest for everyone in this collection Central location Friendly staff and great restaurant

  • Lovely little museum, amazing cafe attached with reasonable pricing. If you get the chance, on a nice day go to the outdoor seating! It has an amazing view of the river and a lovely little lawn usually full of people.
