TEFL TESOL Course Republic of Ireland - Limerick

The City of Limerick dates to Viking times (812 CE). Luimneach originally referred to the general area along the banks of the Shannon Estuary known as Loch Luimnigh.

Limerick City is one of the country's main tourist destinations, only a 15-minute drive from Shannon Airport. Currently tourism is growing at a spectacular rate and the city is the first to provide visitors with 'Street Ambassadors', people designated to help others around and make their stay more enjoyable. The city centre is divided between the traditional areas of "English Town" on the southern end of King's Island, which includes the castle; "Irish Town", which includes the older streets on the south bank; and the current economic centre, called "Newtown Pery".
