“Simply a downtown park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

I'm not a local so I can't speak to the poor reviews by the people who do live in Limerick, but we didn't find this little park to be at all offensive. Granted we were there in the middle of the day while the sun was shining, but we just saw a clean little city center park filled with blooming daffodils, meant for walking, viewing the River Shannon and King John's Castle, and perhaps enjoying a lunch in the mid-day. We had a pleasant experience on our visit. I would recommend visiting for the gorgeous views offered by the location of the park.

“Great from a distance”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

This is a park - long ago it used to be a car park and before that literally a dump and before that again part of the river.

The ice rink is located here over Christmas.

This is best seen from a distance but not always comfortable if actually there because of some of the people that frequent it. Take care.

“It's a depressing little park between a mall the tax offices and a closed department store”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

This is a crappy little park in the city. It used to have a steel fence around it but that was taken down due to it being absolutely lethal at night. By day it's fine. Theres an information office located there and arthurs quay shopping center is across the road but there really is absolutely no reason this should be a destination on anyones trip.

“very dated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

arthurs quay park needs to be updated, its structure is very poor and even if you were not in this locality as a tourist you would find it hard to find it, there aint good signage around the city to guide you to it. very little happening in there.

“Ok by day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2005

It's a well-located little park, near the tourist office and overlooking the Shannon. It's pretty enough, and should be a lovely refuge in the centre of the city

But it's underused by locals, and consequently a little too quiet to be really a safe place to sit on your own, particularly at night. After dark it becomes an attraction for troublemakers and people who just want to drink

A better bet if you have children, and it's daytime is the People's Park up near the railway station. It has a lovely playground, and open spaces, and the kids will enjoy it. And there is the art gallery just by the gates which is usually worth a visit.
