Limerick (Gaelic: Luimneach) [1] is a city in the southwest of Ireland.


Limerick is probably Ireland's last unspoiled city. From a tourist point of view it might not seem to hold the same allure as Cork or Galway, but it is a perfect vantage point to view the Irish culture and the way in which "the Irish" behave when they are not being "observed". Only twenty minutes by bus from Shannon Airport, Limerick is well worth spending a few hours in at least.
