Limerick is great craic, whether you're drinking or not. While there are absolutely loads of spots to go and enjoy a pint, sometimes that just doesn't tickle your fancy.

Well, there are actually loads of alternatives to a night out on the pints, because Limerick is packed full of fun stuff to do to occupy you're evening out so it doesn't involve alcohol.

Here are some of the fun things you can do instead of heading out to the pub and having a drink.

Experience Virtual Reality at Fury VR Gaming Centre

This is Ireland's largest VR gaming centre and makes for an unbelievably enjoyable activity.

Get your skates on at Roller Jam

They do 80s and 90s themed nights which are gas, and they also cater for hen parties.

Go on a food crawl

Limerick has a fantastic array of restaurants and cafes. So why not try a load of them in the space of a few hours?

It's like a pub crawl, but instead of heading from pub to pub for pints, you head to different spots for food and try a variety of cuisines in the one night.

Do an escape room

Honestly, this is one of the most fun things you can do with your mates.

Basically, you all have to work together to find clues and solve puzzles in order to figure out how to escape the room.

There are a few spots around Limerick you can have a whack at an escape room, including, Asyl Room on Cecil Street and Escape Limerick on Nicholas Street.

Spend the night at the arcade

Fun World is a fantastic spot to spend a few hours bowling, playing pool or having a go at the arcade games.

They're open from 10am until midnight every night.
