Limerick, sitting on the banks of the River Shannon, is Ireland’s first ever City of Culture. This is where Frank McCourt set his novel, "Angela’s Ashes". It’s a city peppered with galleries, protected by King John’s Castle, and rich in elegantly crumbling Georgian architecture. The city of rugby also has a thriving street art scene, a lively festival schedule, and a crossroads tailor-made for foodies in the Milk Market.
