Girls from the nearby Tait's Clothing Factory used to meet under the clock when they had a 'date' after work and the 'limerick' on the directional sign recognises this. Its a Limerick landmark that will outlive us all.

Tait's clock is very much part of our history and folklore situated very prominently with it's four face clock facing the different streets. It has been a friend to many of us over many years telling us the time before mobiles came into being. Here...More

I love these old towers and most don't work, however this one is correct and it is very stately and beautiful construction. Well worth a visit. Surrounded by many shops, businesses and cafe's.

An interesting and photogenic memorial to a Limerick Scotsman who made uniforms for the Confederate Army in America 150 years ago. It's a kind of mini Big Ben...if you get the angle right. The surrounding area is worth photographing too. If you're on a guided...More

This is just a scenic clock in town. Nice for pictures and a quick stop while walking around. I would recommend taking the time to see it if you are in the area.

Yep, good to see because it's one of the things listed to see, but after all, it's a clock! You don't need to book, there are no fees or queues, and a perfect photo opportunity no matter which side you choose to stand on.

This clock is in honor of a man who immigrated to Limerick as a youngster (13 or 14). It's the story of rags to riches then decline of fortune. If you happen to be in the area, take a peak.

It's a clock in a square, I don't see why this would be a tourist attraction. Teenagers with skateboards hang out there.
