Situated at the point where the river Shannon meets the sea, Limerick city is a must visit for rugby fans; it’s the home of Munster rugby, and a match at their stadium, Thomond Park, is a sight to behold. The city also boasts the impressive St. John’s Castle and the bustling Milk and Potato markets on weekends, while the rest of the county is a retreat from the urban chaos with lush farmlands all around.
Home to one of Ireland’s finest exports, Waterford Crystal, this county is a sunny seaside retreat popular with families. The calm coastline is bordered with powdery golden beaches, with plenty of quaint villages along the coast to stop off in such as Dunmore East and Tramore. A visit to Waterford city with its medieval streets, castle, and of course, the Waterford Crystal factory, is a must.
