My Recommendations

Image - King John's Castle
King John's Castle
Kate:Beautiful views from the castle and great bars and restaurants at its door. This castle is full of history, and shows life back when the first settlements were founded in Limerick. Great for all the family and avid historians.

Bunratty Castle & Folk Park
Kate:This gem is based in Clare, just 15 minutes drive from Limerick City. Its a brilliant day out for the whole family. It shows life as it was in Ireland over one hundred years ago. Lovely cake shops, and opportunities for old timely photos dressed in clothes as they had worn them back in that time. Petting farm for kids as well.

Black Taxi Tour Belfast
Kate:Learn first-hand about the troubles between the protestants and the catholics in Belfast. This tour is absolutely brilliant and if you value your love of history it's a must!

Kate:The Eileen Hickey Irish Republican History Museum, is a museum in Belfast, Northern Ireland. It was established in 2007 after years of campaigning by Eileen Hickey, who collected the exhibits. The museum is based in Conway Mill in the Falls Road area of West Belfast.
