County Limerick is a place of quiet beauty and rural charm, offering good sport to the angler and golfer and some of the finest hunting country in Ireland. Much of County Limerick is low and undulating-particularly in the east, where it forms part of the rich plain known as the Golden Vale. There are, however, considerable elevations towards the west, south and north-east fringes of the county, and in the south-east the Galtee mountains reach into County Limerick from neighbouring County Tipperary.
Lough Gur, located about 6k to the south east, is a small horseshoe-shaped lake nestled among limestone hills in south-eastern Limerick. Over 30 ancient sites and monuments can be found around its shores today, ranging in date from Neolithic to Medieval times. Lough Gur’s monuments include stone circles, dwelling-places, field systems, standing stones, ringforts, crannogs, castles, and a megalithic tomb. Archaeology woaling tours are available during July and August.
Limerick is also a very convenient location to tour the south and west of Ireland from. Killarney and the ring of Kerry is about 1.5 hours drive while Connemara and the wesk of Ireland is a day's trip.
