Nice views from here of the river and of John's castle. The city does make an effort and plant flowers and so on. However, I pass here everyday and it is very run down, some young people and middle aged people drinking alcohol ... while none has ever bothered me here it just isn't a place for tourists to hang...

Lovely place to pass the time, watch the boats on the river, and engage with locals. Close to the merchants at Arthurs Quay it's also a fine place to picnic.

This park, since its inception, has been something of a disaster. Where to even begin... First of all, it is tiny, it is barely even a park, most of it is concrete. It's one saving feature is its location next to the Shannon where you can get great photos of the river and King Johns Castle. Other than that there... More

I usually walk through the park if the weather is nice. There seems to be a large number of young adults hanging around the area often. There is an abandon building that sits on the corner and there always seems to be a number of people during dusk. When the carnival comes to town, it changes quite a bit.

Quaint Park and museum. Worth the trip. The art gallery was very interesting. The staff in the gift shop were very nice.

This is in a great location on the quay side with great views over the river but unfortunately, it needs a little care and attention. It would be a nice place to sit out and have lunch during the day (weather permitting) but there's not a very pleasant fell about the place. A number of buses stop around here so... More

A meeting place for heroin addicts and drunks. And that is just during the daytime. Best viewed from a distance if you are at the tourist office or waiting for the bus.

A small concrete park in the middle of the city, has fantastic view if you have your camera handy. It has a lot of potential, though the seats in the centre face the wrong direction, so you sit looking at the traffic pass instead of into the park.

Even though I'm not from Limerick I know the area pretty well because I used to commute from Nenagh to Limerick every day when I was in LTC doing my Leaving Cert. There is absolutely no reason for anyone to want to spend time here unless you are waiting on a bus like I used to. It is a very... More
