Sitting only 175 km away from Dublin, one of the most important hubs of technology innovation in Europe, Limerick spans Ireland's longest river, the Shannon. The town featured in Frank McCourt's novel "Angela's Ashes" and the subject of the humorous five-line ditty "There once was a city called Limerick....." the town is awash in medieval and Georgian architecture. The "Emerald Isle" as Ireland is known, is a center of human creativity. Think - actor Richard Harris, the rock legends The Cranberries and Pulitzer Prize winning author Frank McCourt.
Limerick was the country's first ever Irish City of Culture in 2014 hence it had a makeover with a rejuvenated waterfront and a great boardwalk for meandering along. The castle got a new face, art galleries appeared and the foodie scene took off. Add to this scenario the friendly locals and you definitely have a town worth staying in for a while.
From its Viking roots of 812 to the invention of "Irish coffee" in 1943, Limerick is one of Ireland's oldest cities dating back to 1197. It is here you will find the longest footbridge in Ireland, if not in the whole of Europe, at the University of Limerick, named the "Living Bridge".
IBM was one of the first multinational tech companies to set up here in 1956 and was followed by Ericsson (1957) with HP, Microsoft and Oracle plus others following in the 1970s and the 1980s. Ireland has easy access to the European market and plenty of talent. It is where you will find the "Silicon Docks of Dublin" to add to its reputation where the likes of Google, Apple, Facebook, Airbnb and a heap more can be found.
So if you like chasing little bearded men wearing hats (aka leprechauns), you will definitely be in the right place.
