Motorhome Hire Limerick

Lending its name to the humorous poems, Limerick isn’t a city that deserves to be laughed at. The historic centre has an impressive number of stunning Georgian-era structures, including St John’s Cathedral, which has the tallest spire in Ireland. But beyond the reach of the city streets, Limerick is ringed by commanding areas of natural beauty. One of the best ways to begin discovering it all is by taking to the N69 Scenic Drive to Tralee, which at just 100 kilometres long provides a great alternative to the 2,500-kilometre-long Wild Atlantic Way. Walkers are also well-catered for with any number of paths in Curraghchase Forest Park as well as among the mountains of Ballyhoura in the Golden Vale.

Getting to Limerick

Shannon Airport, Ireland’s second main international airport, is located just 20 kilometres west of the city centre. Aer Lingus, Ryanair, and United Airlines provide routes across Europe and North America. The airport can be reached via the N18 dual carriageway, which connects with the M7 motorway (for Dublin to the east) and M20 (for Cork to the south). The M7 has a toll of around €3 for campervans, while the M20 is toll free. Limerick is well-connected by rail. Regular services arrive and depart from the city’s Colbert Station. There are 16 daily services to Dublin, as well as five to Galway and two to Waterford.

Parking in Limerick

There are a good number of parking spaces within Limerick city centre, including on-street parking in Broad Street and the Colbert Station car park. The latter is open 24-hours a day, with prices charged at €5 for a 24-hour period. Larger motorhome hire in Limerick may have difficulty fitting into bays, in which case the best options are to park in either designated campervan sites, or the free overnight parking that can be found east of Limerick opposite Main Street in Glin, where there is a fresh water pipe and rubbish bin.

Annual Events in Limerick

  • Saint Patrick’s Festival, city wide, March. Ireland’s patron saint is celebrated in a series of events leading up to March 17, from concerts to a street parade on the day itself. The parade is free; other events may charge.
  • International Band Championship, O’Connell Street, March. This street in the city centre becomes filled with the sound of marching bands during the championship, which welcomes musicians from all over the world. Free.
  • Riverfest, riverside, May. More than 100,000 people take to the banks of the River Shannon to take part in the water-based fun, which includes aerial acrobatics, dragon boat races and a social swim. Free.

Camping in Limerick

  • Curraghchase Caravan and Camping Park. A stone’s throw from Curraghchase Forest Park, this family-friendly site offers grass and hardstand pitches among the trees from €15 per night.
  • Ballyhoura Campervan Park. Ideal for anyone looking to explore the mountains on foot or by mountain bike, this site has a capacity for 40 campervans and has its own on site Irish bar. From €15 per night.
  • Adare Camping, Caravan and Motorhome Park. This family-run and pet-friendly site has facilities including a kitchen area, children’s playground and a hot tub. From €22 per night.

The best time to hire a campervan in Limerick

Graph of average temperature in Limerich
Average temperatures in Limerick per month

Nestled on the banks of the River Shannon in western Ireland, Limerick is Ireland’s third-biggest city. Because of its westerly location, the city has a temperate oceanic climate. This is dominated by the nearby Atlantic Ocean, which helps keep the region comparatively warm over the winter months and cool in the summer.

Summer temperatures hit daily averages of 16°C in July and August, which are the warmest months of the year. July and August are also the most popular time to rent a campervan in Limerick. This is because the warmer temperatures and long daylight hours coincide with the school vacation period.

For the best chance of dry weather, the best time for Limerick campervan hire is actually between April and July. April sees average daytime temperatures of just under 10°C, which slowly build to their July peak. In addition to less competition for campervan hire, visitors travelling during this period will see western Ireland at its best. The evocative Irish landscapes around the city are alive with the sights and sounds of spring, be that of gambolling lambs or plants coming into flower. Visitors shouldn’t forget that the biggest day in the Irish calendar, Saint Patrick’s Day, is on March 17.

Winters (November until February) see average daily temperatures of 6-8°C. If you’re well-prepared for the weather, there are plenty of reasons to consider a motorhome rental in Limerick at this time of the year. While winter storms can happen, they are very rare and unlikely to cause serious disruption to your plans. The rest of the time, warm clothing and an umbrella are all you’ll need, whether you intend to hike through the countryside or enjoy the delights of the Christmas market.
