Limerick: Upon arrival, we recommend spending the day in Shannon and Limerick, and arranging a hotel in either historic city. Limerick is just a 25-minute drive from the city of Shannon, and it will welcome you with numerous well-appointed restaurants and pubs to take the edge off your jet-lag and settle you for a good night’s rest.
