UNIVERSITY OF LIMERICK
The University of Limerick, established in 1972, is located in Limerick, the third largest city in Ireland. Founded as a Viking fortress over 1,000 years ago, Limerick today contains many architectural reminders of the city's past and offers a variety of cultural, artistic and theatrical events for students. Galway, Clare, Cork, Tipperary and Kerry are all within a day's excursion from Limerick.
The University of Limerick is on a 160-acre site that was formerly a great estate on the banks of the river Shannon, three miles from Limerick city. Facilities include modern, well-equipped classrooms, a student center with lounges, a theater,
and an art gallery. The University has gained a national reputation for its programs in business and engineering, and its campus offers modern, state-of-the-art technology in its programs.
