Just a five minute walk from the Tourist Office and 15 minutes from the rail and bus station, Limerick Museum is based next to St. Mary’s Cathedral and the Courthouse.
The Museum was founded in 1906 and was opened to the public in 1916. Its original location was in the City Library, which was then in the Carnegie Building in Pery Square and the librarian of the day was its curator.
The Museum was closed to the public between 1974 and 1979, when it reopened in new premises in St. John’s Square, where it remained for 20 years. In 1998 the Museum was on the move again this time to Castle Lane before taking up residence in Istabraq Hall in City Hall.
Opening hours: Monday - Friday 10am-5pm (closed for lunch 1pm-2pm)
