Limerick Guide


Limerick is located at the mouth of the Shannon Estuary and is the fourth largest city in Ireland. This medieval city with a charter older than London’s has recently revamped itself to dump its reputation as a dull and dreary city. Prebook car hire in Limmerick right here before leaving for your holiday. It's the best way to travel around, as public services do not operate into rural areas.

Explore Limmerick

Most of medieval Limerick is located on King’s Island. The impressive King John’s Castle dominates the city’s riverside. Over 800 years old, it was built to keep the Irish out of Limerick. There are now interesting multi-media presentations on the history of the city in the interpretive centre inside the castle. Across Thomond Bridge, you can see the Treaty Stone, upon which, 300 years ago, the defenders of the city signed a treaty that ultimately betrayed them. On the other side of King’s Island is St. Mary’s Cathedral. Although the original medieval church was rebuilt in later centuries, there are still tombs and crypts dating from early Norman times inside.

At the north end of O’Connell Street, Limerick’s main thoroughfare, are some fine examples of Georgian architecture, in particular the O’Connell Crescent and Pery Square areas.

The Hunt Museum, located in the old Customs House building, is home to a famous collection of art and antiques donated by the Hunt family to the city.

The major suburbs in Limerick are: Annacotty, Castletroy, Clonconane, Clonmacken, Dooradoyle, Elm Park, Janesboro, Lisnalty, Mungret and Parteen.


By air
Limerick is served by Shannon International Airport, which is about 20 minutes from the city centre. There are regular flights between here and London, Manchester, and some major European cities as well as Dublin and Belfast. Ryanair offers some very cheap flights from UK destinations.

There is a shuttle bus service between the airport and Limerick city centre. Book cheap car hire in Limerick with us today and save time at the airport on arrival, or having to search for depots within the town's center.

By train
Iaranrod Eireann, the national rail service, operates from Colbert Station, five minutes from O’Connell Street. There are regular trains to Dublin and Cork taking three and two hours respectively. Some of these require a change at Limerick Junction, which can add an extra 30 minutes to the journey time.

By bus
The bus station is right beside the train station. Bus Eireann offers services to all major cities in Ireland, including numerous buses to local and regional areas. Buses tend to be cheaper as well.

By car
Limerick has benefited greatly from Ireland’s ever improving road network and apart from a few short stretches, there is now a good road between Dublin and Limerick; the journey can be done in under three hours. Cork and Galway are roughly two hours away.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
