Shannon might be a small town but, in true Irish fashion, it knows how to party. There are plenty of brilliant events to enjoy that make the perfect centrepiece for any visit, however, there are a few we recommend over the rest:
Irish Festival of Speed
August bank holiday weekend sees petrolheads rev their way to Greenmount Raceway in Limerick for Ireland’s biggest celebration of all things automotive. The festival includes stunt riders, vintage and cutting-edge car displays, air acrobatics, sprint racing and much more.
Outbreak – Limerick Zombie Festival
The ultimate Halloween treat for adults and teens, Outbreak sees Limerick overrun with zombies, or at least locals dressed as the undead, for one of the biggest Halloween parties. Events include zombie flashmobs, parades, movie screenings, bands and DJs spread across Limerick’s pubs and clubs.
