”One visit was to The Hunt Museum, Limerick. Excellent. We have seen a lot of museums and this one is a gem. ”

”Great collection of art and artifacts. Worth every penny. The staff was great and very kind. Make sure you all find where the Renoir is, it is easy to miss.”

“Can’t remember how many times I have been here – but always, when in Limerick, I like to visit. Even if you have seen everything before, I find new things to look at.
There is usually a picture exhibition downstairs, this was new since my last visit and interesting.
You can easily do a day trip on the train from Dublin and visit the museum which is walking distance from the station.

I will be back!”

“What an interesting place to visit. We spent about an hour and a half, and took in the costume
exhibition that was on too. The volunteer docents were very knowledgeable and happy to chat and answer questions. Worth going.”

Gillian B from Gargunnock, United Kingdom

“Very impressed with this gem of a museum. Amazing collection of a very eclectic number of pieces. So many different objects and some beautiful and priceless ones at that. Very well laid out in a non fussy way with wonderful drawers that you open which hold some lovely surprises. The building itself is pretty impressive and as for the staff (many of whom are volunteers) their passion for the collection is impressive.”
