Had a great time. Must see if coming to Limerick. Collections were stunning. Gave me a real sense of history which we don’t have a lot of in Australia :-)

If you are a tourist and you want to see some amazing art and a taste of irish history, the hunt is the place to go, and after you are done treat yourself to some great food downstairs (the desserts there are amazing)

The Hunt Museum has exhibits of both decorative art and archaelogical artifacts and it is superb. In addition, the Yeats and Henry temporary exhibition was outstanding. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit - the very informative, polite and professional staff compliment this wonderful museum.

The museum was smaller than expected, but they do have some nice collections. I like how they have many things in cabinets that you can open up to view more. They have a nice tea room on site which had a delicious apple tart.

Late opening hours are good over July...some more signage at the items would be good. Spent about an hour there
