Rugby Training With Munster Rugby

Attend an intensive training session with coaches from Munster Rugby and improve the areas of your game

The sessions here inLimerick are very good and a lot of teams comment on how good they are.

Of course it’s all down to the coach giving the session and the Munster staff that do them are very good indeed.

Teams take on a lot what is taught to them and this is shown in their results when they get home, such as winning their State Championships.

It’s all down to our training sessions and the coaches we provide.

Tour of Thomond Park

Follow in the footsteps of the Munster heroes by taking a look behind the scenes at the historic Thomond Park Stadium.

The stadium tour takes you to places usually only accessible to players and officials.

When you walk through the tunnel and up to the pitch you can imagine the crowd shouting Munster Munster from the stands.

Before or afterwards you can enjoy a look round the Museum which shows Munster’s history including that famous win over the All Blacks in 1978.

King John’s Castle

King John’s Castle is situated in the heart of medieval Limerick City.

Visitors of all ages will find something to inspire and excite them at the brand new visitor experience at King John’s Castle. 

The stunning new exhibition at King John’s Castle brings to life over 800 years of dramatic local history.

John was of course brother to Richard, also known as Richard The Lionheart. There was never any real love between these two brothers.

John was a bad king hated by his people, where Richard was loved but was never home for the people. When Richard was killed in the Crusades, John became king.

The Hunt Musuem

The Hunt Museum exhibits one of Ireland’s greatest private collections of art and antiquities, dating from the Neolithic to the 20th Century, including works by Renoir, Picasso and Yeats. 

The Hunt Museum started up in 1978 in one room, not as old as you think it would be.

John and Gertrude Hunt were collectors and advisors to other collectors of fine art. As John got older he found he had amassed a considerable amount of art.

He asked the Irish Government if they would like the collection but declined.

Two members from what is now University Limerick took the collection and stored in that one room in 1978. The Museum officially opened in 1997.
