Five Things To Do In Limerick When It's Lashing Rain Outside

When visiting Limerick, you're never short on things to see and do but when it's raining, you're options are a bit limited.

That doesn’t mean that you should be confined to your gaff as there’s plenty of fun to be found indoors in the city on the Shannon.

Put on the raincoat and make the most of the grand soft days with any of these options.

Frank McCourt Museum

Take a trip back in time to the Limerick of the renowned writer's youth, as depicted in Angela's Ashes. 

There are murals and memorabilia aplenty and even some of McCourt's ashes which were donated by his family after his death in 2009.

Grab a coffee

Limerick is filled with delightful little coffee places and Harper's Coffee at the Milk Market is just one of them.

The area is a must-visit in the city and Harper's is the perfect stop-off while there.

King John's Castle

Right in the heart of medieval Limerick City, visitors can see 800 years of local history come to life.

Relax in the café afterwards and enjoy stunning views of the grounds and the River Shannon.

Check out some live music

Limerick is a city with a proud musical tradition and once the sun goes down, gig-lovers are never short on places to check out.

Dolan's Warehouse on St. Alphonsus St leads the way for many locals with live music as well as great food and drink every night.


Bounce away the rainy day blues at this Ballysimon Road trampoline park. Each session lasts an an hour and it's a great way to have fun, get fit and, most importantly, stay dry!
