What you can expect from Limerick.
Heralded as Ireland's cultural, artistic, and now digital hub, Limerick was the first city in Ireland to receive Foreign Direct Investment in 922 AD when it was established as a Viking settlement. In 1197, Limerick received its City Charter. Since then Limerick has made massive contributions to theatre, literature, comedy and the visual arts.
Nestled in Ireland's Mid-West Region, Limerick lies on the River Shannon. The city is steeped in history, yet is becoming known as much for its dining scene and street art as it is for its castles, cathedrals and museums. Limerick is also part of a major EU funding initiative to become a ‘smart city’ in an effort to build a sustainable region where digital technologies improve quality of life, empower communities and enable economic growth. Limerick city is now twinned with Austin, Texas, the home of WP Engine.
