Georgian House & Garden
Lonely Planet review for Georgian House & Garden
There's an engaging eeriness about the lofty, echoing rooms of the restored Georgian House, a re creation showing how Limerick's swells once lived. Lavish marble, stucco and wall decorations adorn the main rooms, while things are decidedly downscale when you reach the bare boards and dusty furnishings of the servants' quarters. The hackneyed but entertaining limericks on various wall plaques are a treat. Out back, the restored garden is an antidote – and beautiful contrast – to the plain fronts on the street. It leads to a coach house that contains a photographic memoir of Limerick.
