Limerick City

Getting around

Regular buses connect Limerick’s bus and train station with Shannon Airport (€5 one way), while a taxi from the city centre to the airport costs €32. The airport is 26km northwest of Limerick, about 30 minutes by car.

Limerick is small enough to get around easily on foot or by bike. To walk across town from St Mary’s Cathedral to the train station takes about 15 minutes.

Taxis can be found outside the tourist office, the bus and train station, and in Thomas St.

Scratch card parking discs (€2 per hour) are available from most newsagents and corner shops. There are numerous parking garages around the city at varying rates.

Bikes can be hired at Emerald Alpine (416 983; www.irelandrentabike.com ; 1 Patrick St; per day/week €20/80). The company will also retrieve or deliver a bike from anywhere in Ireland for €25. McMahons Cycle World (415 202; www.mcmahonscycleworld.com ; 30 Roches St; per day/week €20/80) offers free delivery and collection in the Limerick area, Shannon Airport and Galway.
