Limerick, one of the main destinations in the Shannon Region, is the capital of Ireland’s Mid-West and the third largest
city in Ireland. Limerick is a great destination for meetings and events. It offers delegates modern facilities in an energizing setting with lots of opportunities for corporate entertainment.
Located only 25 minutes from Shannon International Airport, Limerick is one of the most accessible city destinations in Ireland. It’s a cosmopolitan city of 500,000 people which is home to over 150 nationalities and a base to over 100 international companies.
Facilities in Limerick city are second to none. Venues include castles, gothic mansions, urban boutique hotels, university campus and stadium locations. No matter what size or type of business event, Limerick has a venue for you.
Ensuring fast, reliable Wi-Fi for delegates can be the difference between a good event and a great one. For conference organisers and meeting planners, delivering such connectivity at a meeting location often means extra cost. Fortunately, Limerick has got you covered.
Limerick offers free Wi-Fi throughout the city and in its leading venues. That means anyone attending a meeting or incentive can get online quickly – whether that’s to catch up on vital work, or to share their experiences of an event on social media. Delegates are as likely to pack a smartphone as a toothbrush, and conference connectivity is no longer a nice-to-have but a must-have.
Free Wi-Fi is just one of the many value-added services and practical supports that Limerick provides to meeting planners. The city’s partner Shannon Region Conference and Sports Bureau provides a free, impartial venue finding service covering the range of options in the city from medieval castles or mansions through to contemporary conference facilities. Whether your planned event is large or small, for business or relaxation, we can suggest a venue to match.
As part of the support, we can suggest pre- and post-event options as well as providing advice on social, tour and partner programmes that planners may want to include. The free service also includes helping to locate accommodation or any third-party services, such as local event organisers should you need them.
We liaise with regional tourism, civic and business interests to ensure successful planning and staging of events. We can seek supplier quotations on behalf of event planners, and we also coordinate and support on-site inspection visits for meeting organisers and media.
Limerick also provides financial support to help with pitching for international meetings and events, backed by help with ‘case building’ material to make your bid as strong as possible.
We know that planning events can be a stressful exercise in keeping many plates spinning. By coming to Limerick, organisers can rely on our practical and financial supports to ensure smooth setup and, most important of all, a memorable experience for delegates.
