Limerick is a real gem that extends along the glorious Shannon river. The city is a charming little medieval center that knows how to preserve its traditions, its beauty and its history through time whilst developing as a major industrial center.
The old part of town and the medieval quarter are at King's Island, located between the River Shannon and the Abbey River. This whole area has been completely renovated, houses painted cheerful colours and restored buildings have returned to their original splendor.
Years ago the city was known only as an industrial and port center; now it has become a very quiet town with a dynamic university and many young people. Limerick is mainly famous for its surroundings: the towns are renowned for their beauty, and there are places like Castleconnell, Adare and Killmallock, filled with a special magic.
In the region, nature prevails and the landscapes are spectacular. You can not miss the Cliffs of Moher, vertical walls of black rock with a height of 205 meters.
ideal for those that want to have enough time for their studies whilst enjoying their free time to visit the city and sightsee.

los profesores son excelentes docentes y personas y te ayudan en todo lo que puedas necesitar. haces grandes amistades con el resto de compañeros de la escuela. es una experiencia única para conocer nuevos sitios y nueva gente, y sobre todo desenvolverte con el idioma.
Limerick es una ciudad preciosa, que por cercanía a muchos lugares de interés turístico, posee una amplia oferta cultural, ademas de un ambiente muy acogedor, tanto en la residencia, como en las familias que yo he conocido. Por otro lado, me gustaría resaltar el ambiente de la ciudad, ya que después de haber oído tantos rumores sobre lo peligrosa que era la zona, tengo que decir que desde mi experiencia, esos rumores son falsos. La ciudad en si no posee un clima hostil ni peligro. Para terminar, aunque podría decir muchísimas más cosas positivas sobre mi viaje,es destacable la buena conexión de la ciudad con el resto de pueblos y ciudades. A pesar de las diferencias culturales de los horarios, ya que allí las horas de cierre de los servicios son mucho antes de las españolas, hemos podido visitar muchos lugares gracias al gran servicio de autobuses del que dispone la ciudad.
LA GENTE CON LA QUE COINCIDÍ
Limerick es una ciudad encantadora, al ser pequeña se te hace muy familiar. Los irlandeses son gente maravillosa, muy gentiles y simpáticos.
Recomiendo la estancia en familia, sobretodo si ya tiene buenas referencias como en el caso de la mia, que se la recomendaría a cualquiera. se aprende mucho más
