The food offering here is consistently good. People often choose The Brasserie or McLaughlins when looking at where to eat in Limerick. The lunch menu has a wide selection of starters, sandwiches and desserts while the evening offering is equally crowd-pleasing with steaks, burgers, pizzas, curries, pasta and stir-fries. The ample free parking is a big bonus as are the supremely comfortable surroundings. Beef is carved at the table at Sunday lunches in McLaughlin’s Restaurant. In fact, respected food critic, Lucinda O’Sullivan said included it in a list of the Top 20 Sunday Lunches in Ireland. Wise to book ahead.
The Leisure Club and Beauty Rooms are not just for overnight guests. The 20m swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam room are very well-maintained. In fact, many local people are members and regulars for classes and treatments. Girlie get-togethers over a spa session followed by Afternoon Tea with a cheeky Prosecco are not unknown.
Neither is a shopping trip and overnight stay with cocktails on arrival, a Tiki bar outside and late checkout up to 1pm.
If you are booking a family break, there is no shortage of things to do in Limerick with kids. They will love trips to King John’s Castle, Thomond Park- the home of Munster Rugby and the Hunt Museum where the tours are all very interactive.
For aficionados, Limerick Golf Club is within easy reach and there are some very pleasant walks in Limerick Park and the university campus. For a more strenuous hike, the local peaks of Moylussa and Tountinna are a rewarding climb. A Killaloe River Cruise along the Shannon is another option for an excursion. Take the time to enjoy the simple pleasures.
Stay there and rest assured, quite literally, of a very comfortable sleep, a very good restaurant, superb service and lots of choice when it comes to things to do in Limerick.
