  • Saw the Yeats and Henry art exhibition here. Fabulous museum. Well worth a visit. Very close to the city centre in a historic building.

  • 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.
