County Limerick sits on the southern banks of the Shannon River, bordering Kerry to the West, Cork to the South and Tipperary to the East. Often overlooked by visitors, Limerick offers much to those who stop and spend some time in the county. The 1690 siege of Limerick played a vital part in the struggle between Ireland and England and what remains of the city’s imposing castle bears testimony to this important event. Aside from the historical interest of Limerick City itself there are several fascinating historic and prehistoric sites to the south of the city worthy of an excursion. Clustered around the small horseshoe-shaped Lough Gur are a number of Stone Age remains, including the 4000-year-old Grange Stone Circle. The Lough is set in picturesque parkland with walking trails and picnic sites. 16km southwest of Limerick is the pretty village of Adare. A popular coach party stop, its quaint thatched cottages host coffee shops and craft centres. The Eastern part of the county is part of the “Golden Vale” heartland, famous for the fertility of its land. Whilst the county is generally flat, there is some variation to the landscape, with the Mullaghareirk Mountains rising in the West of the county, offering tremendous views westwards into Kerry and eastwards across the county.
