“should be church street”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2010

This should refer to St Munchins church on church street, beside the castle. You can actually see one church from the doors of the other, about a three minute walk. It was rebuilt in 1827 and has apparently been the location of places of worship as far back as the 5th century. Island theatre company had their h.q there until 2008 and now it is run by University of Limerick architecture school who occasionally have exhibitions of students work. The graveyard has been in use for hundreds of years and there is a special plaque to commemorate three Norwegian children buried there in the 19th century. They had been passengers on an emigrant ship which had to stop off in Limerick for repairs. the ship was called the Hannah Parr. The story behind it is poignant and interesting.
You can wander the graveyard during most weekdays normal hours, it is rarely open weekends. The church itself is occasionally open for exhibitions and live performance.

Contrary to what trip advisor says, this church is open and functioning as a place of worship. Masses are held there regularly.
