We were surprised that a town the size of Limerick would have such a nice first-class museum. The museum is not exceptionally large but has a very nice collection of various collectibles and antiquities. It is apparently well known for the collection of religious works...More

This is one of the best museums I have been. Centrally located and beside restaurants and other attractions, this museum caters everybody, with items from all over the world and from every era. We got a free tour from one of the staff.

Really interesting collection of medieval and ancient artefacts mixed in with some lovely works by William orpen, jack b Yeats and Picasso. They have stashed away works by Renoir and Gauguin in drawers so you have to “hunt” for them! The staff bend over backwards...More

It is like travelling back in time, a long time back. The museum is well laid out where you start at the top and work your way down to the basement. Great variety of collectables and a great insight into a private collection. Entrance is...More

What a great find! Filled with a varied assortment of art and historical objects, this ~1 hour visit museum was delightful. We also enjoyed lunch in the restaurant overlooking the river.
