Me and dh are getting 'away' for a whole Friday and Saturday.... without the kids.
(a first in 6 years!)

Going to see a 'gig' on the Friday night... but we have a chink of Friday and a chunk of Saturday to be 'tourists'.

So, anyone, what mustn't we miss in Limerick?

I have family in Limerick and would recommend Bunratty Castle which is about 20 mins drive away. They do medieval banquets and entertainment in the evening. Not sure if they are open at this time of year, check out any info for it.

ahhh surely lgj... Limerick is a good place too?

Really looking forward to my Irish jaunt (still feel Irish, despite being about 3 generations removed!)

Any good restaurants etc?
