Getting to the University of Limerick
The University of Limerick is a campus University situated approximately 6 kms from the city centre. It is easily accessible by air, rail, car and bus.
Limerick is a two hour drive from Dublin travelling on the N7. If you are driving to the University, ensure that you park in a general area, rather than a staff cark park, as parking in a staff car park without a permit will result in you getting clamped. There are two pay cark parks also, which require a payment of €3 on exit: only €1 and €2 coins can be used. The most accessible car park to the Foundation building situated at the back of the building, though other car parks are a short distance, for more information click here.
