Just ten miles southwest of Limerick on the N21 you will find the pretty, historic village of Adare, whose thatched cottages and Arts and Crafts–style houses make a lovely excursion from the city.
The neighbouring county of Clare, just across the broad sweep of the River Shannon, has a stunning coastline: the stretch from Kilkee to Fanore is filled with delightful golden beach after golden beach and there are some breathtaking scenic drives to be enjoyed along the coast.
An hour’s drive northwest on the N18 and N85 will take you to the village of Doolin, which is famous for its love of traditional Irish music and the truly awesome Cliffs of Moher, whose inspiring views over the sea will get your heart racing even if the local jigs don’t.
Positioned as it is in the centre of Ireland’s west coast Limerick is the perfect base from which to explore Ireland at your own leisure.
