Bus Eireann is Ireland's public bus service, which has routes to and from all major Irish cities. This page can give you details on the specific routes available in Limerick. Buses will allow you to bring bicycles on board, given that the bus is not full and there is room for other passengers. Students studying in Ireland can receive discounts on bus fare. Discounts are also available for children and families. Week-long passes are also available for purchase. There are a number of other private services including JJ Kavanaghs Coaches and City Link.
Cycling can be a pleasant way to get around Limerick. The city recently made a major effort to construct new bike paths to make it more convenient and safe for cyclists. Bike rental agencies in the city should be able to get you started.
Limerick is relatively easy to negotiate in a car, which will allow you freedom to explore the surrounding countryside. Signs point you in the direction you want to go. Keep in mind, though, that in Ireland people drive on the left-hand side of the road. Most cars have standard transmission, so if you rent a car and are not used to shifting with your left hand, you may want to get an automatic.
