This ‘Runseeing’ Tour of Limerick hits the historic and commercial highlights of Limerick, including its main thoroughfare O’Connell Street, the city centre, King John’s Castle, and historic boardwalks along the River Shannon through the Medieval Quarter. The route combines tours 1 and 5 of the Limerick Walking Routes guide.
This route has three ‘sections’. Start with a 3.7 km loop around King’s Island, with waterside paths around the perimeter and great views to King John’s Castle. Take Bridge St. to the waterside Arthur’s Quay Park. The next section is a 4 km loop around Limerick’s commercial centre, using O’Connell St. out to New St. and Henry St. back. We’ve included a loop around People’s Park. The final 2 km is along the Shannon River on the historic boardwalks between the Shannon Bridge and the Thomond Bridge.
Shorter Option: can eliminate one of the the three ‘sections’ above.
Longer Option: Do the 3 km loop around the City Canal, or add on with more paths along the Shannon River.
