Like many of its villages, Limerick’s market scene is small but perfectly formed. The best of it is found in the city, where the markets nestle amongst substantial shopping offerings along the main streets, so you can switch quickly between designer department stores and the more rustic offerings of the local stallholders. Head rural, though, and you’ll find plenty of tiny charm delivered by local farmers and passionate craft-lovers. Choose your vibe, explore your stalls and fill your hold luggage.
A hidden gem that’s easy to miss, tucked in as it is through a tiny gate between shops in one of Limerick’s main commercial hubs, Lucky Lane will appeal to those who enjoy things quirky, artistic and original. Charmingly referring to themselves as ‘World Famous in Limerick’, the fusion of stalls and traders that make up this covered courtyard sell books, plants, revamped furniture and arts and crafts. Although there’s plenty to explore, most are enchanted by the artistic use of the space, which often features musical and visual offerings alongside the wares.
