Study English in Limerick

Limerick is a real gem that extends along the glorious Shannon river. The city is a charming little medieval center that knows how to preserve its traditions, its beauty and its history through time whilst developing as a major industrial center.

The old part of town and the medieval quarter are at King's Island, located between the River Shannon and the Abbey River. This whole area has been completely renovated, houses painted cheerful colours and restored buildings have returned to their original splendor.

Years ago the city was known only as an industrial and port center; now it has become a very quiet town with a dynamic university and many young people. Limerick is mainly famous for its surroundings: the towns are renowned for their beauty, and there are places like Castleconnell, Adare and Killmallock, filled with a special magic.

In the region, nature prevails and the landscapes are spectacular. You can not miss the Cliffs of Moher, vertical walls of black rock with a height of 205 meters.
