Where to Stay

Rest your head in one of Limerick’s great hotels...

A bustling and cosmopolitan city, Limerick is packed with a great selection of places to stay so you can explore the urban attractions and surrounding waterways. There are plenty of hotels boasting excellent leisure facilities and a variety of family-friendly rooms. Meanwhile, outside the city, you’ll find a delightful range of places to stay, from indulgent, luxurious options such as Dromoland Castle, to quiet riverside B&Bs in scenic towns such as Castleconnell.

The Savoy Hotel 
Nicely located just a stone’s throw from Limerick’s many bars and restaurants on O’Connell Street, the Savoy is one of the city’s best hotels. Walk into the spacious lobby and you can access the hotel’s smart restaurant on one side, and a pleasant bar space on the other, while just beyond reception, a nice library bar makes a good spot for a pre-dinner drink or afternoon tea. Rooms are a decent size, with nice views over the city from the upper floors. The hotel also boasts a small gym, spa area and a mini swimming pool. 

Limerick Strand Hotel
You’d be hard pressed to find a hotel with better views and the Strand’s riverside location is certainly one of its major selling points, with easy access to Thomond Bridge and King John’s Castle. Definitely among the more popular accommodation choices in the city, the Strand is a big hit with both business and leisure travellers. All of the 184 rooms are newly refurbished with a contemporary palette of greys and golds and soft lighting, and well-proportioned family rooms are available, too. Best of all, the excellent Energize Health Club has four pools, including a 20-metre pool, a steam room, as well as a well-equipped gym. 

One Pery Square
An elegant choice for a luxurious weekend away, One Pery Square embodies the graceful beauty of Limerick’s Georgian Quarter and is located next to the People’s Museum of Limerick. There’s a delightful elegance to One Pery Square, with its beautiful original staircase, heritage colour scheme and views over the People’s Park. And while it doesn’t have a gym or pool, the Baroness Spa Escape in the hotel’s 1830s basement vaults is where you can be pampered to your heart’s content. Overnight, opt for a period room – there are only four – to fully immerse yourself in the style of the era, with roll-top baths, dressing screens and hand-crafted brass beds. oneperysquare.com

Clayton Hotel Limerick
You can’t miss the Clayton in Limerick – it rises from the riverside at Steamboat Quay and overlooks the River Shannon, so you can expect that the views are going to be good from the inside. Perfect for families, the rooms here are spacious and well-priced, and there are interconnecting rooms available for families with older kids, too. Leisure wise, there’s a swimming pool, gym, sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room available, while the hotel also boasts a waterside restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the river. 

Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa
If you don’t want to be in the thick of the urban buzz, the Radisson – set within 20 acres of parkland – is a great alternative. It’s only 10 minutes to the city, but it feel delightfully peaceful and quiet here, with great views of the Woodcock Mountains and plenty of space for walks. Rooms are comfortable and modern, there’s a restaurant and two bars, as well as a spa and leisure club. 

Dromoland Castle
From the moment you drive through the gates of Dromoland, you know you’re somewhere special. Sitting within resplendent grounds that feature sweeping manicured greens and a scenic lake, this is five-star luxury with a very Irish twist. The castle itself rises from the surrounding park and woodland like something out of a film, while inside there’s lots to enjoy from the elegant, octagonal bar with blazing and creative cocktails, to the beautiful Earl of Thomond dining room. Fancy a spot of falconry? You’ve come to the right place. Estate activities allow you to experience hawks, falcons and owls, as well as trout fishing, woodland walks and, of course, golf.

Rivergrove House B&B
It’s hard to imagine a lovelier setting for a B&B than Rivergrove. Sitting on the very edge on one of the most scenic parts of the Shannon, it’s a great base for walking and angling – and you’ve the traditional music pubs of Castleconnell right on your doorstep, too. 

Beechfield House B&B
This large house in Castleconnell boasts a large garden that really adds to the sense of space here. The rooms are very comfortable and beautifully decked out in neutral tones, and all have ensuite bathrooms. Inside, common areas include the bright breakfast room, conservatory, patio and lounge. It’s a perfect choice for a few nights in this lovely riverside village.
